In a remote rural Portuguese village, a man wanders through the mist. His house, the crops, the animals, and the pine forest wonder if he truly belongs here.

Outside The Oranges are Blooming. The man and the mist
A misty mountain range. A few mistrustful looks and a disquiet of an absolute silence. Holy chants echoing from the church while a man endures alone between the walls of his dark house.
He wanders through the splendid nature, bewailing on his condition as a man doomed to serve the surroundings he has rejected.
