Project

Goddess

Eva is a housewife, her husband Robert is a businessman. Their marriage goes through a deep crisis after their only daughter Lily falls into a coma. At a private clinic, the doctors suggest turning off Lily’s life support, but Eva does not want to give up. She meets a healer Kaia, who promises to save her daughter. Despite Robert’s protests, Eva joins her community in the countryside, hoping to bring Lily back to life. GODDESS is about falling for false prophets and about the healing process of a broken relationship.
