Once upon a time, somewhere in a far-off land, lived an elderly husband and wife. The old woman fell sick and died, and the old man, a stingy carpenter, found himself alone. Pondering the life he had lived, he met a young woman, a chestnut seller who desperately wanted to leave home and find a better life overseas. Surrounded by nothing but the rudimentary nature these lonely souls share fond memories as well as contemplations of their futures. Should they remain haunted by a life that was, or do es another path call, joining countless others on the rickety cart to a life unknown? A chance encounter gives rise to a dreamy fairy tale about the disappearance of a small community that once existed on the Yugoslav-Italian border.
