In a godforesaken place young Ada and her ill mother live in solitude and destitution. They bear the heavy load of being bound together into a silent communion. Their quiet life slowly flows like a wordless ritual and hides under the seemingly still surface the cold tides of misery and apprehension of the inevitable. As the mother's health deteriorates things escalate into a spiritual crisis which unleashes the whirling forces of fear and despair. As the light within is about to perish the fabric of reality melts into an oneiric realm of apparitions. We witness a cathartic descent into the abyss, liberation from fear, a mystical sacrament and eventually- death...or perhaps – a miracle.
