Synopsis of the short film: In this unfolding narrative, Alba, a sculptor deeply committed to environmental causes, gathers clay from a lakeside. A serendipitous encounter with Mati, a young girl, sparks an unexpected connection. However, upon Alba’s departure, Mati discovers a forgotten ball of clay. Determined to return it, Mati embarks on a journey to find the elusive artist.
