Two technicians from the forest department walk through a forest, setting up cameras to document animal activities in the night. The cameras have a heat sensitive detection that allows it to capture the animal's image.

Somewhere else, woman has moved away from a forest a long time ago. She yearns for her dead husband who is also the forest. Her desires are manifested in her dreams that are triggered off by the last mango of the season.
