A poignant, although not without optimistic accents, story of three siblings: 10-year-old Totonel, 17-year-old Ana and 14-year-old Andrea. The two sisters live with their brother in the Roma ghetto on the outskirts of Budapest while their mother is in prison sentenced for drug trafficking. When a chance for a change appears in their lives, the price for it turns out very high as Toto and Andrea would have to leave Ana on her own. In his film Alexandr Nanau, a reputable director, asks important questions about the involvement of an artist in the lives of his or her protagonists, at the same time engaging the spectators into a complex and emotional discussion.
