Daughter of the Sea


After the death of her grandfather, a young woman experiences a spiritual awakening when she is called by Yemaya, the orisha Goddess of the Sea.


An ominous vision leads to bad news for Yanise and her family when she receives word of her grandfather’s passing. Unable to return to Puerto Rico immediately, she arrives three months later and is welcomed by her mom, grandmother, and cousins. At breakfast, Yanise describes a recurring dream of being held in the ocean. Her grandmother recognizes it as a calling from Yemaya and shares a ritual that leads to a spiritual awakening and ultimately, a salve for Yanise’s grief.
