SYNOPSIS

Everyday, a father and his son jump with a parachute from their vertiginous cold house, attached to a cliff, to go to the village on the ground, far away, where they sell the ice they produce daily. 

NOTE

[Jinna Lee, Programmer]

The film is not just a story about a father and son making a living selling ice from the top of a mountain; it is a masterful blend of climate change story and magical realism.
