One night something resembling a meteor crashes nearby the city of Troy, New York and strange things start happening. People walks off as if they were hypnotized and disappears into the forest, gravity is occasionally out of play and some suddenly see their eyes inexplicably bloodshot.

Amidst all this, we follow two women, both named Helen. One is retired and lives an autopilot sort of life with her husband and her beloved “baby”, a doll so lifelike it’s creepy. The other Helen is an artist who lives with a man she might have been leaving if it were not for that she is pregnant. Or is she really?

Rania Attieh and Daniel Garcia has created a film that mixes Greek mythology and scifi, madness, black humor and questions about motherhood and the hardships of relationships in an overwhelmingly enchanting way. An at the same time surreal and realistic apocalypse film with a magically strange tune that remains as eerie vibrations long after the credits have rolled.
