Time & Tickets

Italy, 1900. Young Agata’s baby is stillborn and – according to Christianity - her soul is therefore condemned to wander forever. 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 (piccolo corpo) 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.
