A nameless mute appears in an empty field. The lonely widow materialized him from her thoughts to help her out on her farm. Over time, the mute quietly starts yearning to be loved. Once the widow’s son comes to visit, she hides her secret helper in the forest. Overwhelmed with longing, the mute disobeys.
