The film follows the life of Colombian beekeeper Ramón Galvis Rodríguez, based in the remote town of San Mateo near the El Cocuy mountains in Colombia. The film focuses on Ramón as he reflects on the future of our planet as a direct result of the gradual extinction of bees. We follow Ramón as he moves around his environment tending to his bees and discussing his life’s work among these sentient beings.The film is paired with a score by Garth Knox, which is both beautiful, to complement the captivating imagery, yet eerie, reminding the viewer of Ramón’s words of warning.
