To escape the tumult of arguing adults, a little girl escapes from her house into the night.
Outside, alone in the dark, she takes one step at a time, guided by the stars and strange night sounds.
She seems to see the silhouette of a ram crossing the moon, calling out to her. In pursuit, the child crosses to the other side of the moon, crosses the screen, the mirror, and enters a wonderful world populated by the creatures of the zodiac.
The encounters and trials that await her are intense, sometimes cruel, just like the emotions that drove her to run away. It’s a journey of initiation into the darkness of childhood.
