The film follows a determined woman as she navigates the legally complex and morally dubious labyrinth of child adoption in the rural, disadvantaged communities of Argentina's north. Legal adoption can be a long, laborious, and exhausting process. Its frustrations and disappointments often push eager would-be parents to find other arrangements. The film follows one determined woman as she navigates the complex world of child adoption in Argentina's Misiones province.
