Description

In 1900, the Catholic Church decrees that any child who dies before they can be baptised must be condemned to the oblivion of limbo. Agata gives birth to a stillborn baby in her close-knit fishing village and is distraught at the thought that her little one will be nameless and forgotten. One of the superstitious locals tells her of a church in the north, where children can be magically brought back to life for a single breath - long enough for them to be baptised and recognised by the Church.
