The ephemeral beauty who will melt your heart.
A mysterious girl appears in the lives of an elderly childless couple and a troubled young man and transforms their understanding about love and life. Loosely based on the Russian fairy tale about Snegurochka, this story is about miracles and trusting the divine forces at work in our lives, and at the same time a poignant metaphor for global warming.
