About the Film


Following the unexpected death of his young mother, nine-year-old Elias, who is an active churchgoer and a choir singer, defies his faith as he decides to bring her back from Jesus’ heaven. In his desperate and naïve attempts to get his mother back, Elias repeatedly goes to extreme lengths as he questions the fairness of what happened, for he is still just a little boy who genuinely needs his mother.
