Using gesture and textual fragments, unknown guilt, fear and the strangeness of singular becoming plural are retold as a voiceless, anonymous narrative. Text becomes the body for a hand in an umbilical dilemma, portraying the thoughts of a young woman going through an emotional trauma, facing the taboo of abortion in Islamic society.
