It is believed that in the first half of life a human-being goes up and rolls down in a second. It explains the ambiguous perception of time: when time is watching out for us and when we are watching out for it. The days of the 10-year-old Varvara’s are long, obeying the adult family members.

Varvara is interested in the cost of land in front of her parents home where the shelter is built in the trees. “For what do you need it to know?”, “I wanna know in order to buy it and to live there with my husband or with dogs” – she has not decide yet.

The growth of a child can be observed as the creation of the universe. “Luz silenciosa” is Carlos Reygadas film where the silent celestial light is watching out for human aspirations and passions. Will the child rise up in a new life? Will the child build a life outside of the parental home? In everyday fatalism and mysticism there is always the waiting for a miracle. This is the age of transition to another world, where the possession of responsibility and self-determination will take over.
