Marrying her beloved Nazir means not only changing her name from Helena to Herra, but also giving up much of her freedom for living with his family in Kabul, and facing extreme misogyny in post-Taliban Afghanistan. Struggling with fertility, the Czech woman ends up adopting an outcast yet affectionate boy who brings fundamental change to her life. A sensitively realised story embracing differing perspectives and personalities with empathetic strokes, this animated feature debut directed by Berlinale award-winning animator Michaela Pavlátová clings on to love and hope, in the realm of everyday violence.
