SYNOPSIS: As it is known, the adjective “homeless” (in English in the original) is used with those who live in the streets, outside the society with no means whatsoever, not even the shelter of a home.

The film takes this concept out of collective imagination and into the animal world, where the snail embodies a perfect visual metaphor, due to its ability to create a home as an extension of its own body.

In the snail, body and shelter cannot be separated because they are part of its very organic character.

Using a double transposition, the film suggests an analogy between the animal and the human spirit in their continuing search for the sheltering body, a shell to be used both as shelter and home.
