Basia and Marek live in Sweden. One white lie triggers a flood of suspicion and leads to Swedish child services taking their beloved daughter away from them and placing her in foster care. A daughter’s love for her mother is put to the test. Basia and Marek are forced to stand up against the ruthless bureaucratic ways that give no consideration to human emotions. Faced with the nightmare of losing their child, the parents decide to fight to get her back, dangerously toeing the line of the law.
