Six year old Krizel is a blind girl of Philippine origin, born in Israel. Together with her adopting mother, Janette, a foreign Philippine worker, they try to bridge the gaps of language and mentality amid the harsh reality of their lives, in a country that one of them regards as her homeland and the other feels like a stranger in. Operating on one of Krizel's eyes should allow her to see and will also improve their chances of remaining in Israel. Krizel doesn't want to go to the Philippines, asking her mother, in the event of "getting new eyes", that they be blue ones. This is a film about mother and adopted daughter and the fate that binds them to each other. Human rights related themes: children and youth, disabled people, family, human rights defenders & organizations (A Matter of ACT), migrants, aliens & forced migration
