75-year-old Pavi is a colourful person who lives off-grid in a clay house in the forest, without electricity or water. He is always reading or writing something by candlelight and he is interested in events around the world. In his little kingdom of newspaper clippings, transformed into a collage, Pavi dreams of someone publishing one of his short stories and finally being recognized as a writer.
