Synopsis :

Escaping from the reality of a life that is crumbling all around her, our main character takes herself away to the countryside, to find healing in the natural world. She spends long days exploring the landscape around the cottage she has rented, collecting natural treasures and in her evenings writing about her pursuits. But she can’t help but feel unwelcome in this beautiful place, thanks to the unnerving presence of a local man who she sees walking his dog everyday. Perhaps she is just being paranoid, but she can’t help but feel like she is being watched.
