Elisa portrays the claustrophobic and extremely painful relationship between nine-year-old Elisa and her mother. At night, Elisa scratches herself raw. This drives her mother insane. However rather than to see this as a sign that something is wrong, she demands Elisa stop. Does the mother’s anger provoke further scratching, or is it the other way around? The little family begins to break apart and Elisa’s mother clumsily attempts to keep their life in order, but it has gotten out of control. An undefinable force is splitting them apart.
