"What matters more, your place as a daughter or as a mother?"

Androulla is twenty-four and newly married when she learns that she is infertile. In a bid for Cypriot citizenship she is undergoing adoption by her stepfather, and wondering if she will have to adopt a child one day herself.

As this reality sets in, Androulla's marriage unravels. Between migration departments and doctor's appointments, she must question what it means to be from somewhere, what it means to be a woman and, when an impossible choice presents itself, which of these things means the most to her.
