FILM ON:

"The Adytum" is a coming-of-age story about a girl who learns to read under unlikely circumstances.

The film is a quiet reflection on the human experience of animal drives as power, and a monument to the human ability to translate suffering and moments of epiphany into spiritual transcendence.
