Asia is the single mother of 17-year-old Vika. Vika’s deteriorating health urges Asia to finally find her voice as a mother and to embrace and cherish their time together.
Asia’s motherhood has always been an ongoing
struggle rather than an obvious instinct. Becoming a mother at a very early age
has shaped Asia’s relationship with her teenage daughter Vika. Despite living
together, Asia and Vika barely interact with one another. Asia concentrates on
her job as a nurse while Vika hangs out at the skate-park with her friends.
Their routine is shaken when Vika’s health deteriorates rapidly. Asia must step in and become the mother Vika so desperately needs.
Vika’s illness turns out to be an opportunity to reveal the great love within this small family unit.
