Synopsis

After a long time away from the homeland, father and son are destined to visit. However, such place doesn’t exist and no one’s even heard of it. Suddenly a strange bus appears, going to this place. Father and son are its only passengers. After a long trip, the bus arrives at a peculiar place with no houses, no people, no nature, and no land… only white mountains standing there like a blank, empty page.
