“Whenever people have a choice and one of the options is to wait, they go for it.”
Ray lives alone in his father’s house. Without bonds or relationships, without his own place in the world, without a kindred soul. One day he gets himself a mutilated, one-eyed dog from a shelter. This is how a strong story of one atypical love begins, which finds its poignant punchline by gradually discovering Ray’s complicated past and by means of an adventurous and purifying journey through four seasons of the year.
