by Sebastien Laudenbach – France, 2016

(76', O.V. with italian subtitles)

In dark and hopeless times, a farmer sells his young daughter to the devil for infinite richness. But the price is set higher and the devil asks the farmer to cut his daughter's hands. And He does it. Protected by her purity, the girl runs away: she will meet the Goddess of water, a kind gardner and a prince. It's going to be a log journey towards the light.
