    • Synopsis
    • A young couple in love: Rebecca (32) and her boyfriend Julian (34) are expecting their first child and are filled with joyful anticipation. As Rebecca gives birth to a healthy boy their happiness seems to be perfect. But instead of the unconditional motherly love she was expecting, Rebecca is thrown into emotional turmoil. Helplessness and desperation reign and her own baby is a stranger to her. With every day that passes, her inability to meet the demands of motherhood becomes more and more apparent. Unable to admit this to anyone, not even Julian, she falls into a profound darkness - to the point that she realizes she is becoming a threat to her child. After a breakdown, Rebecca is sent to a clinic. Slowly she begins to long for the touch, smell and laughter of her child. An awakening, perhaps, of the mother inside her...
