The friendship between Maria and Dragana is put to the test, as they both develop a crush on Robert, a fellow-resident at an institution for people with mental disabilities. The three teenagers’ dire longing for independence, amplified by the newly found feelings of jealousy and desire, soon clashes with the stifling rules of a rigorous environment. Featuring actual residents, this powerful story of free will and self-determination dives into an unseen world, shunned by society.
