Two impressionable young sisters find their fledgling religious beliefs leading them toward opposite ends of the spectrum following a series of family misfortunes in this drama from Canadian filmmaker Julia Kwan. Eve (Phoebe Jojo Kut) and her sister Karena (Hollie Lo) were raised by Buddhist parents who showed only a passing interest in their faith. When the family suffers a series of setbacks, elder daughter Karena looks to Catholicism as a means of improving her family's lot in life as her strong-willed younger sister Eve -- born under the sign of the fire horse -- opts for a unique blend of Buddhism and Catholicism that is entirely her own creation.
