From dawn'till dusk, a peasant ploughs his tiny plot of land. Like the day before, the morning passes with an incessant monotony. Like the day before, the heat, the fatigue, and the hunger play with his body and his mind. His son is there to remind him of the miserable heritage he will leave behind. But the sunset is beautiful, like forgiveness,
like eternal love.
