Synopsis

Lena is subtle and beautiful 16 years old girl, growing up in Bratislava. With her best friend Roza, cheeky and provocative, they are hanging out in forbidden parts of city, dark clubs and dangerous industrial constructions. They're dreaming of love, they discover their first sexual desires. At home, Lena's parents are giving most of their attention to her 15 years old brother. He is complicated and hysterically emotional because he's still suffering from consequences from child polio. Her parents are so busy with him, they haven't noticed what's happening with Lena. They're shocked when she tried to commit a suicide. But not only them, also Roza doesn't understand why Lena did it and ended up in child psychiatry hospital. (excerpt)
