Plot Summary

In their secluded farmhouse, a mother, formerly a surgeon in Portugal, teaches her daughter, Francisca, to understand anatomy and be unfazed by death. One afternoon, a mysterious visitor shatters the idyll of Francisca's family life, deeply traumatizing the young girl, but also awakening unique curiosities. Though she clings to her increasingly reticent father, Francisca's loneliness and scarred nature converge years later when her longing to connect with the world around her takes on a dark form.

Trivia The music that Francisca and her father dance to is "Naufrágio" in the voice of Amália Rodrigues. This type of Portuguese traditional music is called "fado", which translates to "sad destiny", and it's commonly used to express the feeling of losing someone dear. See more »

Quotes Francisca: Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. And whether or not it is clear to you, the universe is unfolding as it should.
