    • Synopsis
    • A heavenly inquiry lands in a village to inspect the sleep of a peasant and his renegade goose. Led by the hums of a spectral apparatus, the visitation detects esoteric frequencies from a spiritual reality cloaked in the peasant's home and land. A threshold pierced by the gaze of a saint. A whirlwind spun from the faith and hunger of Cairo's City of the Dead.
