The story of a woman from Chechnya, Raisa, who has fled with her children to Poland to escape her difficult past. By taking the decision to leave, she breaks away from the traditional system there.

She shares her life story with her Polish language teacher in this film about female strength, determination and the struggle for dignity and independence.
