Tears to the Sea

Tears to the Sea

The past is a shattered mosaic, made out of fragments of affections and memories. Maria cannot put the pieces into perfect order but she can give them new meaning. She starts a journey to her father’s home in search for answers. Spiraling into her memories, she looks for guidance into healing her soul from the past.
