Synopsis :

A naturalist reaches the wooded areas of eastern Friuli, on the border with Slovenia to carry out his usual work. He observes wild boars and deers, looks for traces of predators, maintenances traps and cameras scattered over the forests. Looking at the computer filming the webcam on a fox, he realizes that the animal comes close to the ruins of abandoned houses in the inner part of the forest. The next day he goes in search of those houses. Bad weather continues to rage making inaccessible his way back. Fragments of a distant past emerge from the darkness. The rain is relentless, and pushes him to seek a shelter in the houses of the abandoned village. Inhuman screams echoing, now near, among the streets of the ghost village.
