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.
