Rachel is 40-years-old, single and has no children. She is working as a teacher at a middle school, and has a large circle of friends and also keeps in touch with her ex-husbands. She also takes guitar lessons and is happy with her life. Then one day she falls in love with Ali, and his four-year-old daughter, Leila, enters her life. Rachel takes care of the toddler, cares for her and soon loves her like her own. But she must recognize that the close bond with Leila also harbors a possible risk, especially in relation to Leila’s birth mother. Rachel doesn’t want to put up with just being an “extra” in Leila’s life. Time is also working against her, should she still fulfill her wish to have a child of her own.
