All his life as a shepherd, Janos waited to be freed. Today, like the sheep that roam the meadow happily, Janos is impatient to open a door that has been sealed up and that holds him captive. And like a lamb waving in Lady Sheep's belly, eager to get out for its very first breath, Janos wants to find his way into a world full of possibilities. In a purely observatory approach, we focus on a life cycle that is played out upside down in a lush landscape in which sheep graze, lulled by the songs of birds, the rustling of the foliage charging the space with a certain captivating magic.
