Thirty Souls.

Alba is twelve years old and wants to discover the mysterious, fascinating and unknown reality of death. With her best friend Samuel, she enters abandoned houses, travels through forgotten villages and explores remote mountains that hide another parallel world. Here is a journey to reveal the unexplainable conflict between the living and the dead.
