After a long time, Ema returns to her native town as her father suddenly falls ill. Staying at her parents’ home, she is flooded by childhood memories, which lead us to conclude that there is a problem in the family relationships. The problem also hovers above Ema’s relationship with her sick father, as we see her uneased. However, when Ema stumbles upon a box full of snow globes at her family home, we learn that she was sexually abused by her father when she was little, and he gave her snow globes as a gift.
