Plot synopsis
A young Kyrgyz girl - Ayka - lives and works illegally in Moscow. After giving birth to her son she leaves him in hospital. Some time later, however, her motherly yearning leads her to desperate attempts of finding the abandoned child. The director states: It began with a dry statistic. In 2010, 248 babies were given up by Kyrgyz mothers in Moscow's hospitals. What could be the reason behind Kyrgyz mothers voluntarily giving up their babies, abandoning them in a foreign country? What could be forcing them to commit such an act, unnatural for any woman? I realized I could not fail to make a film about this: a film about a Kyrgyz girl searching for the child she abandoned in a Moscow-based maternity ward. This film will be about all of us: about what happens when relations between people and their environment reach such an extreme that the individual begins to deteriorate morally, and life forces the individual to re-evaluate and to change, sometimes even against his or her will.
