Eini is 13 years old. She grows up isolated from society with her violent father, a man afraid of the world, who keeps Eini very close. He does everything he can to make her believe that the world outside and the people out there are evil, and that all that has to do with sexuality and adulthood is dangerous. The brutality that Eini is exposed to pushes her to almost lose her sense of self. But through her contact with the force of nature, and by using her invincible fantasy, Eini is capable to create a world within, from which she can draw the strength to survive.
The story of Eini’s grandmother is told through animated sequences, the animated dolls providing a means to further explore fantasy and violence, conveying a state of the real and the imaginary, of the past and the present interlocked.
