Amira is a bubbly 17-year-old who has grown-up believing she was conceived with the smuggled sperm of her imprisoned father. Her sense of identity is shattered when another attempt to conceive a child with her father’s smuggled sperm reveals he is infertile, rattling her community and turning her family against itself. Amira embarks on a quest to discover her biological father, and salvage what is left of her identity as her world falls apart
