A poetic documentary about the infinite relationship between man and animal created around the original music of Finnish jazz musicians Verneri Pohjola and Mika Kallio. The music, based on improvisation, is like an emotional language between the man and the animal without the restrictions of written language or fictional stories, making the film a true multisensory experience in which image & sound are in perfect unity.
