A Rom family living far away from the urban centres of Bosnia-Herzegovina. The father Nazif salvages metal from old cars and sells it to a scrap-dealer. The mother Senada keeps the house tidy, cooks, bakes and cares for their two small daughters. One day, she feels a sharp pain in her abdomen. At the clinic she is told there is something wrong with the baby she is carrying, she is at risk of septicemia and they must operate immediately. But Senada has no medical insurance and the hospital’s head refuses to treat her. A race against time and Senada’s mounting sense of hopelessness begins.
