Hara leaves the maternity ward with a baby in her arms. She spends her days looking after her newborn. Daily scenes of affection, familiarization, devotion, but also acquaintance with the infant, to the melody of a lullaby. Everything seems cosy and warm. But the recurring news report about a baby that has been kidnapped from the maternity word brings us back to reality with a jolt.
