    • Synopsis
    • This is a documentary triptych about a group of homeless young people who have survived their drug-addicted childhood, grown up and begun to live an adult life. It is a story about a boy facing the surreal, degenerated society of his native village, full of hate and sadistic anger while searching for his mother. It is a story about a pregnant girl who wants to give birth to a baby whose childhood will probably be even worse than hers. But her own sisters are forcing her to have an abortion.
