Tasio works as a charcoal burner since he was 14 years old, in a small village in Navarre. Life changes, but mountains stand always there: abrupt and beautiful. Mountains are his playground during childhood, but they are also the place in which he finds food for his family. When he grows up, he will add the work of hunting to that one of charcoal burner. This is a period of rural exodus, of emigration to the cities, looking for a better future. Despite of that, Tasio prefers the solitude in his mountains to safeguard his freedom.
