On the Other Side of the Pillow a Rose Was Blossoming

In a remote mountain village, Maria keeps waiting for her beloved husband who left for seasonal work abroad, but his journey back home lasts longer than expected.
Maria is convinced that her infertility is the reason for her husband's absence.
In an attempt to find the cure for her imaginary sickness, Maria performs magical rituals in front of three old village women. After the last ritual, Maria falls into a long, deep sleep.
