THE STORY: As a first-time mother about to have a home birth, Mari is certain of one thing: she can’t wait to hold her baby. The next morning, shes certain of something else: the baby in her arms is not her baby. A contemporary thriller with age-old roots, MINE explores an unseen world where doubt and certainty blur and madness vies with reality.
