Chara struggles with a childhood trauma and her lack of maternal feelings. As a woman, am I allowed to reject the role as a mother? What harm am I doing to my child? The pressure from the glorification of motherhood shown everywhere in society is huge. By slowly approaching the shy Melina, daughter of her boss, Chara is forced to face her fears. She is supported by Christie, her childless colleague and friend. A portrait of a woman on her way to self-acceptance. The two directors approach this subject with great sensitivity and without judgment.
