Marta is an independent, career-oriented woman. Her daughter Nina suffers from sleep disorders, and Marta takes the opportunity to move to the mountain village of Malanotte. Adapting to that life proves to be more difficult than expected. Nina’s symptoms get worse, to the point of suffering from hallucinations, and the bruises on her body prove that she is hurting herself to punish her mother. The girl says she is being attacked by an old woman, who sits on her chest to steal her breath. This witch is the Pantafa, a legend that inhabits the dreams of Malanotte. What if what Nina says is true?
