Kasia (40) has two teenage kids, is happily married and loved. She is a middle-class woman with a high education and a managerial position at work. Her life is perfectly organised and is a stream of successes. One day her peaceful and perfect life is destroyed by the news that she is pregnant with a baby with Down’s syndrome. At this moment, she can decide either to give birth or have an abortion. Yet for her, neither of the solutions is good. Each will result in a drama and trauma. The camera stays with her for over six months documenting her state of mind and emotions, up to the final scene of the film – the delivery.
