Amina is a single mother who must pretend that her husband is dead. In fact, she became pregnant by a man who simply deserted her. She makes a living creating wire stoves out of reclaimed materials.

Her teenage daughter Maria is a smart, popular pupil at the local high school, but she has just been expelled for being pregnant without a word of concern from the disapproving headteacher. Amina is horrified at the thought of her daughter having an abortion because she feels the need to conform to religious teachings and placate the local imam.

This film depicts women who honour their sacred bonds to one another. It shows how women can support each other in the face of patriarchal tyranny.
