An island off the coast of Portugal: a seaside resort during the summer, a protected reserve for the rest of the year. Only the lighthouse keepers live there in winter. Along with thousands of seabirds. An immersion into solitude and the natural elements, filmed with a sense of framing that blends man into his environment. The magnificent portrait of one end of the world.
