The Slit takes place in a town where time has stopped, Vila das Pedras. A late afternoon that becomes eternal in a town of mist and glaring sun.
The wind has stopped blowing and the light always hits the same corners.
Night no longer exists and the sky is cloaked in fog and its sadness. Sleeping has become difficult and the moment seems to have no future.

At the top of the hill, a rock and a tree watch over the village.
