SYNOPSIS

Maria, 52, seems to have everything: power, wealth, beauty, love. Despite her many successes, her life is dominated by an all-consuming desire to have a child – the essential piece of the puzzle that life has denied her. Confronted with the onset of infertility and the difficulties of adoption, Maria grows increasingly frustrated and finally abandons home, reason and moral values in her struggle for happiness.
