SYNOPSIS: Nancy visits her daughter in the hospital who has just given birth. Tagging along is her 8-year-old Lebanese neighbour, Amirah. It is a bittersweet meeting for Nancy, as her new grandchild is about to be taken by the Department of Community Services. While holding the baby to say her farewell, Nancy makes the spontaneous decision to bolt from the hospital with the baby, Amirah as her accomplice. Not long after their audacious escape, a pedestrian is involved in a hit and run. Three young boys step in to help, unsure if he'll survive the night. Across eight distinct yet interconnected stories, Nancy's desperate flight sets off a chain of events that brings together complete strangers over the course of one dramatic day.
