Synopsis
In this political parable set in the primeval forests of Sri Lanka, the civil war has left a terrible mark on two villages—one Tamil, one Sinhala. A ‘death strip’ separates the two due to their constant fighting. And no child has been born on either side of the barbed wire for some time.

The villages receive messages from their respective gods that they are each to send a representative to an isolated place, where they will find the secret to renewing life. However, only one will return. As the Tamil woman and the Singhalese man chosen to heal their villages enter into the Forest of the Dead, they are forced to confront both provincial secrets and their own personal pasts.
