A violent epileptic fit turns Saga’s world upside down in a strapping psychological drama where the distinctions between reality and fantasy become skewed and diffuse.

Following an epileptic seizure, the single mother Saga is afflicted with memory loss. Subsequently, she has a difficult time distinguishing what is true and real. Afraid that she will be seen as incapable of taking care of her son, she desperately tries to hide her troubles as she searches for the cause of her disconcerting plight. Repressed memories and hidden events from the past are of crucial significance in Tinna Hrafnsdóttir’s engaging and potent debut film, which builds upon the acclaimed author Audur Jonsdóttir’s award-winning novel of the same name.
