Asia

Asia

Asia’s motherhood has always been an ongoing struggle rather than an obvious instinct.
Becoming a mother at a very early age has shaped Asia’s relationship with her teenage
daughter Vika. Despite living together, Asia and Vika barely interact with one another.
Asia concentrates on her job as a nurse while Vika hangs out at the skatepark with
her friends. Their routine is shaken when Vika’s health deteriorates rapidly. Asia
must step in and become the mother Vika so desperately needs. Vika’s illness turns
out to be an opportunity to reveal the great love within this small family unit.
