One night, a woman is summoned to sink into past memories through a dream. In Michelle Coelho’s experimental documentary, the dreamlike world dialogues with the reality of many women around the world: abortion. On the island where “women create fissures through which the light enters”, they are reminded one by one that The Sea is also theirs. (K.M.)
