Eva is an ambitious woman who is very career orientated, but she puts this to one side in order to give birth to her first child, Kevin. The mother and son relationship is awkward from the very start and despite her best efforts to bond with her child, Eva's attempts are in vain. When Kevin reaches 15, he does something irrational and inexcusable in the eyes of the community and the rest of society.
Eva struggles to come to terms with what her son has done, and begins to feel that she is responsible for the grief caused. Was it because of their poor relationship? Did she even ever love Kevin?
