A young, modern mother struggles to find her place in Baku, Azerbaijan, a place simultaneously Muslim and secular, progressive as it is traditional, and, like her, at a crossroads of seeming contradictions. Navigating the trappings of both conventional and modern female roles, she straddles the space between choice and responsibility, where in the course of one day she can be a mother, a daughter, a wife, and still be herself.
