"A beautiful portrait of community...raw and honest."Lovia Gyarkye, The Hollywood Reporter

"... it's a bracing work that passes quickly in 87 minutes. But the world it shows us, etched in fully felt performances and beautifully hued compositions, feels vividly, sometimes overwhelmingly present."-Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

On the outskirts of N'Djamena in Chad, Amina lives alone with her only daughter Maria. Her already fragile world collapses the day she discovers that her 15-year-old is pregnant with a baby she doesn't want. In a country where abortion is not only condemned by religion, but also by law, the two women find themselves facing a nearly impossible battle for healthcare in a conservative patriarchal society.
