A story told with no words but with the power of sound and visuals of unspoiled Patagonia. 

Pure joy and a sensorial experience. This is a meditational film, soothing for the soul and mind. Taking its viewers on an  introspective journey of serenity. A deep breath of fresh air in a noisy world.

The illusive pumas feature prominently not in the traditional format predator vs prey but in their more common state of relaxation and contemplation, giving viewers the opportunity to connect with this untouched part of the planet through slow motion, time-lapse and aerials. 

Mountains, animals, pure water, dark skies, sunsets and sunrises are waiting to be enjoyed in this art piece where the protagonist is our loving mother nature.
