An extremely tender portrait of Aster, a blind young mother who lives with her little daughter in a shared home for single mothers in Ethiopia. Her low singing about love and little mice pervades the film like a seeing person’s dream. The little girl is still called Bethi, but Aster wants to change her name to Medanit: the Amharic word for cure. The child leads her from darkness to light. She is her mother’s eye.
