The hermit flees the convent to inhabit the solitude of an inner desert where he can rediscover an innocent and full faith. Disarmed of the protection of a strict liturgy, his soul wanders with the sounds of the wind, languishing in the memory of past sins never fully expiated.
A sexual impulse martyred the hermit who decided to flee from temptation, escape from the convent and take refuge in a cave. According to the Christian faith, sex is seen as a sin and thus becomes a refuge for all our frustrations and complexes. From that moment on, the hermit lives in permanent existential anguish, aware that to redeem his sins he will have to accept pain: only in this way can true forgiveness be obtained. But the only certainty is that this decision hides a hollow and empty existence, oblivious to the reality that surrounds her. In her inner refuge she unconsciously seeks self-punishment in an essentially conservative regressive movement whose end is death.
