A physician returns to Stockholm after a stint with Doctors Without Borders. Her mom wants her to move back home. Her friend advises her to start a family, sooner rather than later, since motherhood is the meaning of life. Does Susanna need kids to feel settled and whole? What if her life's purpose is her career?
