Logline

A girl runs through the outskirts of a small town, fleeing from an invisible enemy. Her name is Sara. Apparently, she is looking for someone to play with, but above all she wants to find Bea, her best friend, hoping that finding Bea will calm her grief. On her running away, she meets several characters who, without fully understanding why she acts like this, will shed light on the reasons for her distress.
