Manu, a soldier wasted through years of battles ends war today. A man like him, too sensitive to withstand the nightmare that is combat, should have never participated in the war. He fell down as many times as he stood back up. His only special wish is to go back home and find Magnolia, the woman who awaits him. It’s the beginning of a new road. His memory does not give him the privilege of remembering the way back. There is not much else left to do, but to keep his chin up, focus and go forward. The intricate journey introduces him to a world of illusion where truth and fiction merge. Is he remembering, or is it just his imagination? Manu is not concerned about defining the borders anymore. So many years fearing them, and now all he wants to do is to advance.
