This story is the triumph of survival, the will to live and the desire for beauty, the hymn of female power. In the center of events, the main character named Liz is a mute midwife from a small provincial settlement located in the American outback. Her quiet life overshadows the accusation of murder, which she did not commit. The accuser is a shepherd, whom everyone calls the Reverend. He is the evil, injustice and cruelty of this world, to which Liz is compelled to resist, in order to save her life and the life of her daughter. The devil's preacher, as the embodiment of an inexorable and ruthless human injustice, pursues the unfortunate girl everywhere. The persecutor - there is hell on Earth, which Liz should overcome. And the fragile defenseless woman shows her true nature, faced with monstrous trials. She is not so weak and, if necessary, can stand up for herself, showing strength of character, crystal clear mind and cunning with only one goal - to survive and save the most precious thing she has. Desperate struggle becomes a deadly game with ornate cobwebs of moves, each of which brings this confrontation to its terrible logical conclusion.
