After a young woman Mara gives birth to Ivan, a chain of unexpected and nerve wrecking events begins. Ivan’s father Rok, a married businessman whom Mara obsessively loves, is missing. When she finds out that Rok is accused of white-collar crime, she gets brutally beaten up by his wife’s cronies and ends up in a safe house. Mara and Rok manage to get together, but Mara is put into an impossible situation of choosing between her love and her child. This is a contemporary fictional film placed in Slovenia but could have taken place anywhere else. It’s a personal drama on the background of corruption and a drama of making wrong choices.
