Deep in a forest, an alien woman gives birth to a dying son and must sacrifice her own life so that he may live. Lost and alone in a world foreign to him, he encounters a family mired in abuse and neglect of their own children. Watching from a distance, the veil between his reality and fantasy collide, and he must choose the world he wishes to live in.
