Synopsis: Little Francisca lives on a remote farm with her Portuguese-transplant mother & taciturn father. She idolizes her mother, a former surgeon who is seen teaching her about her namesake, St. Francis of Assisi, & giving her anatomy lessons using the local cows. An act of violence is the catalyst which influences Francisca’s psychologically damaged development into very lonely adulthood. The movie progresses towards an inevitable conclusion as Francisca becomes increasingly desperate for companionship in addition to becoming more & more unhinged.
