A film about the unseen miracle of Baptism and the inexplicable touch of God.

Man at the gates of eternity. Water flows from a small pitcher. The Jordan River immerses death and it immerses life. A small oil-cross on the forehead of a newborn, the scent of God, a candle lit to show the road even when the night is at its darkest. A film about the unseen miracle of Baptism and the inexplicable touch of God.
