Gagarin, MI MANCHERAI
In a world where nature prevails, a man and a woman live their lives as the last survivors of their species. Working as farmers, they deal calmly with the fatigue, the silence and existence.
Driven by the desire to escape, the man finds refuge in his imagination. He explores abandoned villages, scavenges for junk and designs improbable flying machines. The woman watches him from afar, but staying at his side with the care and the self-sacrifice that someone would offer to a madman.
At least until something falls from the sky, breaking into their lives. An unexpected guest that will force them to wonder about themselves, about reality and desire, and the act itself of imagining.
