Small Body (12A)

Small Body

A grief-stricken young woman leaves her village behind to try and free her stillborn baby’s soul, setting out on a perilous journey to a remote mountain sanctuary where she holds faith in a miracle.

Italy, 1900. Young Agata’s baby is stillborn and so, condemned to Limbo. Agata hears about a place in the mountains, where infants can be brought back to life for just one breath, to baptize 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 enable both to come close to a miracle that seems impossible.
