In an isolated island community at the beginning of the 20th century, Agate gives birth to a little girl; sleeping. Terrified that her child will forever drift in spiritual limbo, she flees husband and family, with her baby’s body, embarking on a desperate, dangerous journey to the mountains, where there may be someone somewhere who can perform a miracle.

‘’ ★★★★★ Celeste Cescutti leads a parochial cast that is largely unprofessional, with a fierce performance that bosses and grounds the film’s magic realist themes. Don’t miss it.’ - Tara Brady, The Irish Times

Part of Film Club Autumn/Winter 2022, Droichead Arts Centre in partnership with Access Cinema, a season of engaging and beautiful films from Ireland and abroad. We look forward to welcoming back our existing audiences, our new audiences, and film lovers everywhere.
