What happens if a single woman is obliged to bring up a baby without a father in a “modern” city in a conservative country? This autobiographical documentary thoroughly researches the social roles of women and intellectualizes social inequality while searching for answers to this question.
The visual diary captures the experience of an expecting woman, and presents it as a letter to the baby, while portraying what it means to be a single mother in this part of the world, both geographically and mentally.
