Oliwia is experiencing a maternity crisis. She is a young single mother who raises her two-year-old son. She devotes all her time and attention to the child, which leaves her with very little resources to take care of herself. Struggling with depression, she tries to seek help in many different ways - at counselling centres, church or Tinder. The only support offered by the state to a single mother is psychotherapy with the waiting period of 5 years. The film is an intimate story about helplessness and pain, which shows the daily life of a mother as it is. The film is presented in the national and international competitions.
