    • Synopsis
    • The girls are fourteen and fifteen years old and have already experienced more than most adults. Truancy, escapes from home, prostitution, drugs, life on the streets and misguided loves, even though they are still children. They have incomplete families and botched up lives. Re-education centres are full of them.
      Ela has a child’s face, but her body is very feminine despite her age. The first evening after her mother drives her to the re-education centre, she has to stand on an impromptu stage where she is subjected to the so-called public confession. We learn that she had a thirty-year-old boyfriend Roby who she met regularly and lived with when she ran away from home. Ela loves him, but she is not allowed to contact him. She decides to run away from the centre during the New Year’s Eve disco.
