Small Body

Directed by Laura Samani

Italy, 1900. Young Agata’s baby is stillborn and, in turn, condemned to Limbo. Agata hears about a place in the mountains where infants can be brought back to life for just one breath; long enough to baptise them. She undertakes a voyage with her daughter’s small body hidden in a box and meets Lynx, a solitary boy who offers to help her. They set off on an adventure which will allow both to come close to a miracle that seems impossible.
