    • Synopsis

    • In the heart of the Danube Delta, earth and water, superstition and religion are mixed together to make up the mysterious and miraculous Tekir’s mud. Accused from witchery and chased away from her village, Mara finds herself employed at the Tekir Hotel, specifically in charge of the rich and eccentric Mrs. Lili, providing her treatment with this miraculous mud. The relationship between the two women will become the key of the miracle of Tekir, between magic and power, tradition and modernity.
