It is to be furnished by an elusive miniaturist, whose tiny creations mirror their real-life counterparts in unexpected ways...

Laura Price is a superstar news producer and fiercely loving mom. She isn’t crazy: Laura knows her 8-year-old daughter is going to be murdered. She doesn’t know who the murderer is, or why she’s killed, but she knows exactly when it will happen, where, and how. Despite this, all of her attempts to keep her daughter safe fail, and Serena’s fixed, unmovable, terrifying fate keeps her directly in the path of her killer.

Magical realism is an aesthetic style or a genre of fiction in which magical elements are blended seamlessly with a realistic atmosphere, usually to produce a deeper understanding of reality.

Rooted in 20th century Latin American literature, magical realism has since then been a source of inspiration for cinema worldwide, a medium whose plasticity is deemed ideal for the representation of the anomalous as mundane. Some of the most recurrent features of this style include ghosts as the manifestation of historical memory or a character's haunted past, and the hybridity of inharmonious arenas such as urban and rural, dream and reality, and Western and indigenous. The plots of magical realist works involve issues of change, transience and dislocation.
