Synopsis by Gönül Dönmez-Colin

Written and co-directed by the writer of The Full Monty, this is a story about Catherine, the slightly wild ten-year-old daughter of a farmer family. Her younger brother, Matthew, is seriously ill. Catherine's irrepressible lust for life is a source of joy for her parents, Sue and Tom. When Catherine witnesses a strange phenomenon in the hills, she is convinced that it is a sign that Matthew will get better. But as the news of her vision spreads around town, Catherine finds that she not holds the key to the uncertainties of both her family and the whole community.
