100 Days of Solitude follows Spanish photographer José Díaz as he embarks on a unique adventure: to spend 100 days living alone in a cabin in the mountains of Redes Natural Park (Asturias, Spain) in complete self-sufficiency and solitude, without any communication from the outside world.
Díaz self-records the beauty of his surroundings and his experience connecting to nature and shows us how it is still possible, in our frantic world, to live in harmony with it.

The film documents the trials and triumphs of Diaz’s isolation, both practical and psychological, as he rediscovers the lost connection between man and nature. As the days pass, Diaz misses his family more and more.
Diaz focuses on the beauty of the region, with stunning shots of wild boar, deer, owls, and wolves and the spectacular mountain scenery of autumn and winter, but he also records his day-to-day struggles, including icy outdoor showers and growing his own food.
The film pays tribute not only to the visual beauty of nature but also to its sounds. There is a particularly striking sequence where Diaz imitates the howl of a wolf and hears wolves calling back to him through the darkness.
