The director Anna asks her mother why she decided to live as a single parent. Was it a self-determined decision? Does she lead a self-determined life? Anna gets no satisfactory answer and explores her mother's life story and her intense feminist involvement in the 1970s. She researches friends and fellow activists of that time and they report and show their struggles for equality with amateur video footage. What has changed until today? Will Anna find the answers she is looking for?
