A young Maasai girl reaches a shepherdess in the Maritime Alps. Two women far apart for skin color, age and language who live together an Alpine season, sharing the hard work, telling their stories. Around them the mountain seems to turn into a green desert where you can find separate lives, linked together by an ancestral time. Far from any border, communication becomes a natural question.
