“Has the atmospheric feel of a religous epic, a journey of grandeur laden with breathtaking imagery.” Little White Lies
Italy, 1900. Young Agata’s baby is stillborn and so, condemned to Limbo. Agata hears about a place in the mountains, where infants can be brought back to life for just one breath, to baptize them.
She undertakes a voyage with her daughter’s small body 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 that seems impossible.
In the film, God is not to be found in miracles or prayer, or in dogma that divides the afterlife into paradise, hell and limbo.
There is a thin line that divides life from death, reality from magic, the possibilities we have hoped for and the time left to us.
Small Body explores the idea of a greater shared space without the presumption of finding absolute answers in order to live in doubt together.
