In the search of a livelihood, Juliana, a young mother, holds on to sanity by a thread, as her world is turned upside down. After losing her job at a restaurant, Juliana downsizes to a one-roomed house in an informal neighborhood in Nairobi. Her luck turns when she is shortlisted as a finalist by a top accounting firm. On this day, the interview is at 11:00 am. The landlord, Mr. Mutisya, gives her a final notice to pay her rent areas the same morning. Her neighbor, Mama Mukami, who has promised to watch her 2-month baby, has a campaign engagement for the local politician. Sister Magdalene, despite being sympathetic to Juliana cannot allow her to leave the baby at the church due to a 'pandemic' of mothers abandoning their children in the compound. Undeterred, Juliana beats the clock and makes it for the interview, her fussy baby in her arms. A sequence of events triggered by her baby's cries make her lose her promising interview. Broken, frustrated, holding onto sanity a thread, she questions her love for her baby.
