Lu is a disruptive, rebellious teenage mother. She lives with her daughter Nina in a women's refuge run by nuns. The arrival of Paola, a sympathetic Italian nun who takes a shine to Nina, coincides with Lu going missing. Maternal asks the big questions in life without directly posing them: What makes a good mother? What does it mean to be human? Is there a God?
