'For safety is a precious place, a place to call our own. This road is hard, this road is long, this road that leads us home.' As winter approaches, a bird flees with her chick, a mouse builds a nest for her child and rabbits run from wolves that roam in the darkening woods. The road home is long and hard, but the animals have each other in this poetic meditation on nature, survival and love.
