When Hay is seven years old, he encounters a dead horse in an open field, carefully observes his discovery, and watches his father and other grown-ups struggle to get rid of it. Unsure of this memory, he is nonetheless much influenced by this incident, and years later, when he cuts himself during a sacrificial rite, it all comes flashing back. Step by step, Hay goes down an inevitable and spiritual path where he confronts the relationship between human and nature, the unity of matter and the living.
This film was a Meetings on the Bridge participant.
