SYNOPSIS

A young mother tends to her two small children and a large old house, which seems to have no room for her. Silently and diligently, she goes through her daily cooking, cleaning and washing, but seems to be barely noticed by anyone – except when her less-than-stellar appearance blocks the view. She seems at peace and content with all and is sheltered from the world outside and from within, in a cocoon of blissful ignorance. But all it takes to topple the walls in this family “castle” is something barely noticeable and insignificant: The Stain.
