re·demp·tion /rəˈdem(p)SH(ə)n/: the action of saving or being saved from sin, error, or evil.
It details the process of forgiveness from the beginning, with praying hands and closed eyes, to the end, where she is surrounded by the ethereal garden, symbolizing heaven. Through the images you are taken through the steps to redemption.
