A huge forest of stones lie in the highlands of Peru. Alcibiades was born in this land, and is now the guardian and guide of the forest. Through his words and the great images shown throughout the movie, we are shown the peoples' love towards their homeland and how they lived there for generations .

映像美も素晴らしいが、ストーン・フォレストに生きる父と少女を配した素朴な語りがとてもいい。
こういう稀有な生がなおこの地上にあること、それは世界中のさまざまな地域にまだあるのだろうけれど、なかなか出会えない焦慮に襲われる。
