Synopsis

Lucy is hospitalized in a psychiatric hospital in Mozambique. She dreams about her little son, Hanic and her husband, Pak who is a soldier at war. In the meantime, a quirky musical instrument plays: her own bed. Lucy's musical virtuosity attracts the attention of the hospital nurses. One day, her song is played in a radio program and Rosa, an evangelical priest of Radio Mozambique goes to the hospital to listen to Luc's song. Lucy takes the priest's visit as an opportunity to run away from the hospital.
