Virág, a former Hungarian politician, retires from politics. She and her partner Nóra decide to adopt a child and build a family. After having adopted a daughter, tensions begin to rise between them since Virág thrives as a mother while Nóra struggles to find her place within the family. When the tides of hate and homophobia in Hungary flow into their lives, they face the difficult decision of whether to leave the country.
