All Souls' Day

On her eighteenth birthday, Lena is trying to bond with her family. All Souls' Day, a time for contacting the dead and getting together to return to one's roots, puts our protagonist in a special mood and changes her outlook on her own problems. Everything that happens throughout the day will revolutionise Lena's view of her family. It is a story of the search for one's identity and roots, of life and death, of the co-existence of parallel worlds that come together through the power of love.
