A side shot of Maxima Acuna, an indigenous Peruvian, middle-aged woman stands in traditional shawl, skirt and large-brimmed hat looking to her right. There are mountains and green land behind her.

Two teenage sisters, Ibadeta and Djeneta, lie in a vegetative state in the small Swedish home of their Kosovar family. Their mysterious illness is known as “resignation syndrome,” a condition that can affect asylum-seeking children, often following a threat of deportation. Their youngest brother, Furkhan, imagines a life beyond the snowy expanse of his temporary backyard—and into the far reaches of space.
