Amina, a frightened 17-year-old young woman, finds herself in the midst of an unexpected pregnancy, overwhelmed by fear and uncertainty. Desperately seeking solace and guidance, she instinctively turns to the wisdom of older women, hoping their experiences can provide her with comfort and valuable advice. However, instead of finding the solace she craves, their stories have an unexpected and contrasting effect on her emotions.
