A man is listlessly walking along a country road when he notices that in the middle of a field, somebody is behaving in an odd and bizarre way: he’s jumping and running in a circle, holding an open umbrella, even though it’s not raining. The man stops by the side of the road and watches him, curious, until Matilde will make an appearance, changing their destinies forever.
