The story of a young boy who is birthed in the fire of a mystical vision. Around him move Chava, Shira, Eli, and Jael - the adults who love him but who live in conflict with one another. Estranged from Chava, Shira struggles to find her place in the world while raising Elijah and mourning the death of her lover. One day at the beach outside her cottage retreat, Shira loses sight of Elijah and fears he has drowned. But then a stranger, Jael, finds him hidden within the rotting trunk of a tree. Jael's act of returning son to mother brings her and Shira together through bonds of desire and faith.
