This is an account of one woman's desire for children, entangled in her desire for living intensely. It is also a story of love, ambition, and the choices made by a modern woman in her thirties. The author exposes the inner struggle of a woman who likes to win but who's faced with losing. She is driven by anger and longing, doubt and determination, envy and love, as she pushes her way through the squelchy bog of emotions in wishing for children. She describes her mixed feelings in a direct and down-to-earth way while using unusual and moving images.
