Barely out of her teens, dependent on her family and extremely nearsighted, Monika, 20, desperately wants to pass her driving test. She undertakes a risky eye laser operation which fails and she loses her sight. Her fragile mother cracks under the strain of seeing her daughter blind and defenceless. Through this Monika shows her own inner strength and fights for her independence. A year later she enrols in an apprenticeship as a physical therapist. She discovers a new sensual connection to the outside world and discovers a balance between disability and autonomy
