Andrea and the symbiote travel to Toledo; when they arrive, they find a lonely bus station, which slowly turns off the lights for them. In the silence that surrounds them, Andrea watches the moment pass and with it her certainty about her future dream with the symbiote, feeling that everything she experiences is actually a memory.
A film that reflects about love and its timely farewell. The death of Democritus serves as a metaphor for separation; to release the fog (the honey) and with it the loved one. Silent, introspective, fragile. A black and white film to ask for forgiveness. A window to the memory of a person who says goodbye, without being able to say goodbye.
