Description

After her marriage breaks up, a woman returns with her young son to the ramshackle house in the countryside where her parents once lived. Her story unfolds against the backdrop of a country laid waste by a half century of Communist rule. She grapples with the desolation of her physical surroundings and seeks solace in the world of her imagination, where her memories are interwoven with tales from ancient mythology.
