When Sima decides to get close to the one thing that matters to her, she has no idea of the price she will have to pay.

One morning Sima leaves the women’s shelter where she lives and makes a mysterious visit to a pre-school, where she gains entry under false pretences. There she attempts to deliver a birthday present to Oshri, her five year old son whom  she gave up for foster care when he was a baby. But she is prevented from making meaningful contact with the child by the preschool teacher, the child’s foster parents, and ultimately by her own questions  over what is in fact is best for the child. 
A  touching and sensitive film that asks some serious questions about the emotional pain of mothers who have had to give away their children away.
