By exploring the daily lives and struggles of Maria and Marin, who use wheelchairs to move around, and that of their one-year-old daughter, Evelina, the documentary reflects and addresses a series of important human rights issues in Moldova, from the limited access in terms of infrastructure and unsuitable physical environments, to the often-prejudiced societal perceptions.
