A new, immigrant mother faces the challenges of postpartum life in the US. As she juggles between the loving yet demanding bond she has with her baby and the hostility of the outside world, she longs for a sense of home. In a recurring dream, she is surrounded by matriarchal ancestors performing a ritual in her Moroccan Jewish tradition to protect mother and child, through which she finds the strength to fight the demons she has to face in the present.
