“Arturo is almost 90 years old. Widowed for a long time, he is used to being alone and he spends his days as a pensioner, without doing anything special: walking, sitting by the sea, pretending to listen to the radio. Then one day he comes across a newspaper advertising cameras and, for a moment, the opportunity to devote himself to a hobby brightens up the life of an old man like him. The seagull which was chosen as the subject, however, seems to have an entirely different idea on the perfect photograph and, what started as a game to deceive the waiting, turns very soon into a small enterprise which has the slow pace of age, but the same urgency of freedom and fantasy as a bird’s flight.”
