An everyday drama portraying one morning in the life of a mother and her 4 year old son. We follow the mother and child through all the morning routines while the boy tries to stretch out time to avoid going to kindergarten. But there is no way out. The separation between the two is inevitable as it is for most parents and children in Denmark every day. The film is a slice of life and a (self-)portrait about motherhood and its dilemmas that many parents will recognize from their own lives.
