    In a little village shaped by the long-standing customs and traditions, a husband and wife lost their son ten years ago. Their plan of fake death and staged funeral will take their son’s murderer back to the village after a decade of hiding in fear. Is it desire for revenge stronger than desire for life? Is it possible to forgive and close the cycle?
