Her job, her family, her lover – which will she choose?

1997, TV journalist Elizabeth is pursuing a story of a child’s disappearance in the north London Hasidic community. In the wake of her father’s sudden death and her alcoholic mother’s increasing obsession with her childhood in wartime Hungary, she struggles to manage her job and her relationship. Then she gets a phone call to say that her mother has been arrested in Budapest.

Elizabeth is forced to confront the nature of motherhood, love and loss as she puts together the clues to her mother’s past and to the fate of the lost little girl.
