Lucy is 11 years old. Neglected by her estranged parents, she ends up being placed in a children's home. Through her eyes we follow Lucy's struggle to cope with the system. Her saving is her self belief and her certainty that she is being watched over and protected by the holy spirit. Hers is a heroic quest for love, beauty and transcendence.
