Pregnancy behind the Iron Curtain is the subject of this serious drama. The story centers around an obstetrician-gynecologist in her mid-thirties. She is divorced and works in a small hospital. She gets pregnant by her lover. Now she is faced with the decision of whether or not to keep the baby. On one hand, her biological clock is ticking and she wants to have children. On the other hand, being a single parent brings a lot of pressure and responsibility. Her lover, who is married, provides little help. Her lover's wife tries to make her feel guilty. To help her make her decision, she begins listening to tapes of her patients telling tales of their mother. The movie ends before the woman makes a decision about whether or not to abort.
