Immersing viewers in its characters' customs and beliefs, the film chronicles with unblinking realism, a disappearing tradition and a disappearing people."--Container.

Summary: With little dialogue, this film is a meditation on the mysterious cycles of life. Set in Italy's mountainous region of Calabria, it traces the path of one goatherder's soul as it passes from human to animal to vegetable to mineral. Director Michelangelo Frammartino was inspired by Pythagoras' belief in 'four-fold transmigration' of souls, but his film is far more physical than philosophical.
