It was the power to break away from fetters and a new world that the lonely man who lost his family gained.

main1.jpg

Fred is a widower who leads a monotonous life such as a pendulum in a country town in the Netherlands. He avoids contact with others and lives quietly. One day a stranger appears suddenly in front of Fred. His name is Theo, who doesn't have words and memories. Fred has no choice but to start living together because Fred doesn't know where he can return to. Until now Fred was bound to rules, but he is getting the color back in his life. ―― It's so tough to live as one pleases. However nothing is as desolate as being unconscious of an important thing. What is the meaning of happiness the unnamed man gives to the man who lost everything?
