The film follows Mara (Malina Manovici), a nurse and single mother who has come to America on a temporary work visa and marries an American she has met only a few months before. In the process of getting a green card she is faced with abuses of power on every level and forced to test her own limits. The writer-director based her plot on the difficulties she faced obtaining residency in America many years ago, empathetically exploring the timely and contentious issue of U.S. immigration.
