As a victim of the Dutch Child Benefits Scandal, Sheila (44) is involved in a bureaucratic battle for compensation. She tries to deal with her ongoing debts and a traumatic past so she can be a better mother for her daughter Farah (7).

After his film Alone Against the State, Stijn Bouma elaborates on the theme by zooming in on the everyday life of a family that was affected by the scandal.
