Synopsis

In a little desertic town, where mirages seem to come alive, Gaston and his mother Fresia, live. Lonely characters within a community that looks like it’s out of time, liable to the memories of a forgotten past, where voices, sounds and gestures reveal the magic of a nostalgic world, that opens at the turn of a bicycle’s wheels.
