The main character is a paralyzed woman named Christine – we see her pilgrimage to Lourdes through her eyes, restricted by her own limited view of the world. Her life, changed by her illness, has led her to involuntary isolation, an isolation which she wants to overcome. She longs to belong to society once again. Through Maria, a young care-taker, she finds her connection to the past and a sense of hope.
