Stefan, a Romanian construction worker living in Brussels, is on the verge of moving back home. He cooks up a big pot of soup with leftovers in his fridge, to hand out as a goodbye gift to friends and family. As he is ready to go, he meets a Belgian-Chinese young woman who works in a little restaurant while preparing a doctorate on mosses. Her attention for the near-invisible stops him in his tracks.

Winner of the Berlin 2023 Encounters section and Best International Film Galway Film Festival 2023, this meditative, lyrical journey is another sensitive reflection on nature and humanity from renowned Belgian filmmaker Bas Devos.
