    • Lucia, a Russian mother, and her 6 year-old daughter, Marussia, find themselves living on the streets of Paris. Not having a stable house, they sleep wherever they can – a night at a Russian priest’s, another in a welfare facility, and even in a 4 star hotel. They live each day as if it were the day that could change their life, meeting different kinds of people, wandering aimlessly and waiting for something wonderful to happen to them. As their situation is not getting any better and they end up sleeping under a bridge, the Russian community decides to buy them a ticket back to Russia. Marussia revolts against her mother and runs away. She doesn’t want to go back. And at the same time she wants to have a real childhood. What kind of decision is her mother ready to make?
