A Muslim woman in a headscarf copes alone after losing a child. What do we know of her? All the characters who enter her life project their assumptions onto her. Coincidences, chance encounters and misunderstandings crescendo to a frantic finale where a baby goes missing and the audience, along with those in the film, fear the worst. The drama unfolds in a modest block of apartments in suburban Sydney, where cultures from across the globe live in close proximity, but often don't communicate. Absurdist and slightly off-beat, this slice of suburban life eschews the cinema of full disclosure and keeps its central character at a distance, inviting the audience to interrogate cultural prejudices and assumptions about religion and secularism, modernity and irrationality.
