My idiotic heart

Ida gets pregnant with her boyfriend, but realizes she doesn’t want the child. The fear of him leaving her if she shares her true feelings, makes her have an abortion in secret, while she makes him believe it was a miscarriage.


As a young woman, I am faced with many conflicting dreams and expectations both from myself and from my surroundings around becoming a mother. I think many can identify with being afraid of losing autonomy and, at the same time, wanting to create a family. I wanted to reflect on this confusion and doubt in Ida, who experiences a paradox: She is afraid of being abandoned, and because of that, she does things in secret, which reinforces her loneliness. I hope that this film will create conversations about feelings and legal rights around abortion and that women who face this choice will feel seen in a place where they can sometimes feel lonely.
