SYNOPSIS

Philip (85) lives everyday for 30 years in hope that one day he will be reunited with his wife in afterlife. But his yearning is jeopardize by the dream he had about her- in which he searched for her among the crowd of women in a barren landscape but he could not recognize his wife’s face no matter how much he struggled. Tormented by the doubt whether dead people too grow old like us. Or will their appearance change with time? He puts all effort to ensure his reunion with his wife and to do whatever it takes to retain the fading memories of his wife’s face from his mind.

But this quest of Philip demands him to face the things that he had avoided for thirty years and at this stage it’s no more a choice but the only gate to open and walk through it.

Philip (85) menjalani hidup selama 30 tahun dengan pengharapan suatu hari kembali dipertemukan dengan istrinya di kehidupan selanjutnya. Namun kerinduannya terancam oleh mimpinya tentang sang istri – di mana ia mencarinya di antara kerumunan wanita di sebuah padang tandus tapi seberapa keras ia berusaha tetap saja ia tak menemukan sosok istrinya. Tersiksa oleh keraguan apakah orang mati juga menjadi tua seperti kita, ataukah penampilan mereka berubah seiring berjalannya waktu? Ia pun berusaha sekuat tenaga untuk memastikan pertemuan kembali dengan istrinya dan melakukan apapun demi mengembalikan ingatan akan wajah istrinya di benaknya. 

Akan tetapi, pencarian Philip mengharuskannya menghadapi hal-hal yang ia hindari selama tiga puluh tahun dan pada babak ini tidak ada pilihan selain melewatinya.
