When a blind little girl is close to death, her parents and an uncle hold a bedside vigil. They enlist the help of doctors, astrologers and fortune tellers in an effort to save her life. The girl's concerned family talks in vague generalities as they remain hopeful for the fate of the afflicted child and their own lives. Director Adriano Apra employs a minimalist approach to tell the somber drama.
