A door bell rings. Lana, a young pregnant woman, opens the door and sees her new neighbour Marija on the doorstep. Marija introduces herself and accepts Lana‘s invititation to share a cup of coffee. After a rather curious small talk, Marija wants to leave, but Lana implores her to stay a bit longer. Why? Because sometimes it is easier to confide in a complete stranger.
