With the Armistice of 1943, Michele, a young Italian soldier begins his homecoming journey.The state of forced isolation in primitive, unspoiled environments leads 'the deserter' towards an intimate and profound relationship with the primordial essence of life. Within a changing and surreal landscape, favorable and adverse at the same time, Michele covers the span of human existence through his apparently accidental encounter with places of the soul and with mysterious, emblematic figures. The keystone to the whole story is the unexpected encounter with an Italian soldier of unknown identity. He is laid out not far from two other lifeless bodies, black with earth and blanketed by a dense fog.
