Qatar. Six-year-old Leila wakes up one morning and finds out that her mother, Sara, is gone. Leila becomes completely dependent on her father, Ali, especially for emotional support. Days turn into weeks, and Ali cannot take care of Leila by himself. He becomes compelled to hire Rosa as a live-in caretaker for Leila. Leila and Rosa quickly forge a strong bond, and the three of them fall into a comfortable routine, until one day Ali announces that his wife is coming back. When Sara left, she checked herself into a mental rehabilitation centre following a suicide attempt. Her return will threaten the well-being of the entire family, including herself.
