    • Synopsis
    • Some people would call her stupid, but that’s just one way of seeing it. Maybe subconsciously she wants to remain a child forever because of the harsh way her mother and her sister Katia live their lives. Her Russian mother fell into prostitution. Slowly Katia was dragged into this world too.
      Katia’s sister becomes more and more isolated with nobody to share her feelings with. In her own universe she is just Katia’s little sister. So that is what she calls herself, as if she has no name of her own.
