This metaphorical surrealist tale is an allusion. Nightingales in December is a trip into the memories, and the fields of the current realities.
What if the nightingales were working, instead of singing and going south?
Is the innocence the only saviour of birds songs?
There are no nightingales in december... What is left is only the history of our beginning, and our end.
