Dos mujeres coinciden en una habitación de hospital donde van a dar a luz. Ambas están solteras y se quedaron embarazadas por accidente. Janis, de mediana edad, no se arrepiente y está exultante. La otra, Ana, una adolescente, está asustada, arrepentida y traumatizada. Janis intenta animarla mientras pasean por los pasillos del hospital. Las pocas palabras que intercambien en esas horas crearán un vínculo muy estrecho entre las dos, que por casualidad se desarrolla y se complica, afectando a sus vidas de forma decisiva.
"Two women, Janis and Ana, coincide in a hospital room where they are going to give birth. Both are single and became pregnant by accident. Janis, middle-aged, doesn't regret it and she is exultant. The other, Ana, an adolescent, is scared, repentant and taumatized. Janis tries to encourage her while they move like sleepwalkers along the hospital corridors. The few words they exchange in these hours will create a very close link between the two, which by chance develops and complicates, and changes their lives in a decisive way" --Container.
