A father and his son spend a whole day in the woods. They fish, talk, check the status of their relation. In the answers of his son the adult perceives an autonomy of thought and a lucidity of analysis that surprises and saddens him. The kid has reacted to the separation of his parents by getting closer to the mother, with whom he lives. But inside of him, he harbours the sorrow of the father’s absence. Maybe the tears will succeed in diluting the painful remembrances and sealing this important moment of reunion, the implicit attempt of shortening the distance, making up the misunderstandings, regaining the lost time.
