The story about a woman who has retreated into an imaginary world after losing her young daughter. Both Cristina's husband and mother clash on how best to care for her. With the help of a local espiritista, Cristina gains enough strength to let go of her tragic past and set her daughter's spirit free to find rest. Fact or metaphor, the film operates on its own logic, blurring any distinction between the psychological and spiritual. It doesn't seem to matter. What does matter is culture and community.
