Synopsis:

Based on true events, The Gift tells the tragic story of a young seven year old girl, who is lead to believe that the mole on her lip is a gift from God and that all her wishes will come true.

Arno lives with her parents, three sisters and grandfather in a remote pasture within the high, majestic mountains of Central Asia. Her mother is pregnant and her father's only wish is for her to give birth to a son.

Arno leads a carefree life and wishes to be the son her father has never had. However, nothing lasts forever and their world is soon to be destroyed by encroaching civilization

The family's fragile existence is also in jeopardy, as Arno's doubt about her father's love for her, breaks their spiritual relationship.

As events unfold, unfulfilled desires rise to the surface leading to an unexpected tragedy...
