Ritva, a young woman, has kept her pregnancy a secret. It would not be accepted in this rural Finnish town of the 1950s. She has the baby and, forcing her sister to play along, abandons the new-born. The following day, the infant is brought to the hospital in which Ritva works as a kitchen hand. The community condemns such a mother. With the deed haunting her conscience, Ritva is more willing to confess her act.
