Synopsis
After a long time away from their homeland, fate hands a father and son an opportunity to visit. But when they start their journey they discover that no such a place exists and no one they meet has ever heard of it. When a strange bus appears, destined for their homeland, they get on board. They are the only passengers and after a long trip the bus arrives at a very peculiar place with no houses, no people, no nature, and no land. They are surrounded by white mountains, looming like a blank, empty page.
