Somewhere on the Flemish flat countryside, where the horizon is a line that makes a thin but clear border between heaven and earth, Karel trains and nurtures his pigeons. His perfectly symmetric house shows no signs of his numerous victories and prizes. The regularity and the never-changing rhythm, both for him and for his pigeons, create a safe nest.
I was born here too. Despite all the memories I cherish, I left one day, just like Karel's pigeons. But unlike most of them, I never returned. Now I come back during the making of this film for one pigeon season. While the pigeons come and go, I film Karel and talk to my father about the choices we’ve both made.
