synopsis

Getting up at 7 am. School. Lunch. Obligatory lessons. A meeting.
Cleaning. Free time. Sleeping. Dreaming. A new day. This is the life of a
child, brought up by a system. The story takes place in youth home that
houses children, who come from socially unsuitable environments. The
film follows one year in the lives of four individuals whose paths would
probably never have crossed if the circumstances had been different.
Now, they share the joy of birthdays, Christmas celebrations, waiting in
line to use the bathroom, fights and teenage love. Despite all the house
rules, this newly embraced home is where they want to belong and seek
shelter.
