June 2020, the shelters reopen amid a thousand uncertainties due to the pandemic that imposes new rules and requires an adaptation of spaces. For Roberta, “you can’t leave mountain garrisons closed!” And his enthusiasm has the flavor of the challenge as well as of the mission. Mother of two children, she runs the shelter alone after the disappearance of her husband, whose only witness is the Labrador Spritz who never leaves her. Through daily efforts and moments of solitude, an intimate and dry story unfolds, in which the protagonist questions herself about her future and reflects on the collective drama. The refuge thus becomes the place that unites family and mountains, work and dedication to a dream, and slowly, with the arrival of the first hikers, and their two children, it rekindles hope for the future.
