Many months after her disappearance, the mother of a missing daughter starts her own increasingly irrational investigation. At times she plays with reality, at others – she questions it. These experiences strengthen her observation skills, which eventually leads her to be able to perceive a miracle beyond boundaries. A film about the power of human spirit, about searching for reconcilement and harmony against tragic circumstances.
