SYNOPSIS

It is an another world that is far away from city noise and so called “modern culture”. A world that was created by God, not by human beings. Jonas, nicknamed the “Bull” by the villagers because of his unbelievable strength, walks through his life unrushed and certain. He reminds today’s men of their fragility. He reveals the perception that life and death, joy and sadness, power and weakness inseparably coexist together.
