A bastard child of a noble and his mistress, Madalena grew obsessed with fire after both her parents burnt to death in a tragic accident.

Raised by her resentful blind stepmother who once cut Madalena´s tongue out of an outburst of anger, she cannot talk but finds other means of expressing her feelings towards her abusive stepmother and the local priest who takes advantage of her silence and innocence.

Pyromancy becomes her new language.

Directed by Joao Pedro Frazão (Portugal)
