Narcissus returns to his place of birth intending to sell the house where he grew up. But the place strangely captivates him. He passionately falls in love with a young woman, Persefone, who is marked by the ancient myth of Hades. But the lovers appear to be trapped within a web of inexplicable events. A wondering saint with a bloodied robe and an old church that is in the process of renovation compose a strange journey into mystery and self-knowledge.
