Synopsis

Sarah, a 35-year-old Belgian woman of Moroccan descent, longs to become a mother and start a family of her own. Following the advice of a specialist lawyer, Sarah decides to adopt a child from her country of origin: Morocco. On visiting an orphanage in Ouarzazate, she meets a two-month-old girl named Nae. The pair immediately forms a strong bond and Sarah adopts her. Their happiness is short-lived, however, as when she attempts to bring Nae with her to Belgium, the child is denied a visa. It is just the beginning of a distressing ordeal as Sarah fights to bring her daughter home.
