The filmmaker and his girlfriend are faced with the news of becoming parents. While the future mother is struggling with no worthy role models in her broken home, the soon-to-be-father must come to terms with his long-lost father, now a monk on Mount Athos. But as the nine months go by, the quest for answers and reconciliation – sometimes full of anxiety and resentment – seem to be making way for something much more meaningful.
