A moving award-winning social drama about different faces of motherhood, female strength and the power of forgiveness, directed by one of the most exiting female new voices of European cinema.

On the very same day that she gets fired, her husband experiences a serious accident which leaves him in a wheelchair. Irina’s family is threatened by poverty. To make ends meet, she decides to become a surrogate mother. Fights, despair, and the seed of life growing in her belly are shaking even further the rough and hopeless life she seems to be entitled to. Slowly, she discovers what it means to love and forgive. With her Madonna-like face, the young discovery of the film - actress Martina Apostolova - delivers an exceptional performance in the main role.
