A horse logger and his horse take us deep into a forest in the Ardennes as the seasons go by, living his passion under the gaze of a strange young girl. The man will teach her his passion of draft-horse logging: this is a film about the idea of passing down traditions and how some encounters can lead to a life’s calling. The short film Traces shows today’s youth as the main force of the preservation of our forests. It also highlights the emotional symbiosis between man, the animal, and the forest.
