Strange bleeds and healing powers. Here are the ingredients of a family of Filipino women in Greece. Emy and Teresa’s mother returned to the archipelago while the daughters stayed in Athens, supported by the Catholic and Filipino community that welcomed them. When Teresa becomes pregnant, Emy must deal with her family’s connection to mysterious forces. Is it religion, mysticism or magic?
