Synopsis by Clarke Fountain

Alia (Yvgenya Dobrovolskaya) is a single mother who has no home and no money. Caring for her infant is almost impossible, and she feels that she is doing the best thing for her child and for herself when she abandons it in a public toilet, where it is sure to be found and brought to an orphanage. Later, however, she is overcome with guilt, and a priest suggests she get a job in an orphanage in order to deal with. She succeeds in finding one, and is horrified to discover the abusive and threadbare circumstances the children endure there. Rather than assuaging her guilt, thanks to this job she now has a serious case of righteous anger to cope with as well.
