Maria is taken into custody after being caught buying drugs. Terrified that the social service will take away from her child, she does not tell them that she has left her two-year-old daughter alone at home. She uses her one call a day from jail to try to get someone to rescue the child – but only she gets through to answering machines. She has no way of knowing if her messages have been heard. But if she confesses to the authorities, they are sure to take her daughter away. Shut in her cell, all she can see is the door to her apartment. Is her baby still behind it?
