Take it or leave it

What would you do if one day a newborn baby was put on your hands and said: take it or leave it!

 

 

One sleepy Saturday morning a 30-year-old construction worker Erik gets some earth shattering news: his ex-girlfriend Moonika who he hasn’t even seen for the past six months is about to go into labour. She however is not ready for motherhood and if Erik doesn’t want the kid either, the little girl will be put up for adoption. Take it or leave it!

 

The film is made the frame of EV100 Programme dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Republic of Estonia.
