Synopsis
Mamud is a young glassblower from Egypt who quits his job in Rome making pizzas only to steal his baby daughter from an orphanage where his Italian ex-lover had left her. He breaks into an apartment where he meets Lajla, a refugee from Mostar who has a part-time job as a housekeeper. They form a bond with Mamud bringing a sense of optimism to Lajla's shattered life and she giving him the space he needs to see his plans through.
