A grief-stricken young woman leaves her seaside 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 and save their soul.
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.
