Lena is pregnant and doesn’t know whether to abort or not. She begins to set up the nursery, but only with objects that she receives from the classified ads category as a “gift”. The encounters at the doorsteps reflect loneliness in all its facets and influence Lena to tackle the biggest decision of her life so far.
