Synopsis

In her dreams, a devout woman is visited by her deceased husband, stranded in the liminal space between death and the afterlife. With her son, she embarks on a mystic errand to help him on his quest for salvation.
Religion, spirituality, and the universal human condition are intricately woven in this tale about the agony of accepting loss, while navigating the dissonance between letting go and holding onto that which has passed.
