SYNOPSIS: Taimaa, 25, and Nour, 23, never expected to give birth and raise children far from the homes they fled in Syria. We meet the two women in a hospital in Thessaloniki, Greece, and follow them as they experience the tender joys of motherhood and the painful frustrations of seeking asylum in Europe. At times poignant, tender, and infuriating, this intimate examination of a new mother’s choices offers an unblinking look at what being an asylum-seeker is really like.
