Egoism, fear from responsibility, economic unsafety, poverty, break of traditional values, ruthless consumerism, fear from life? Why so many people decide to stay alone, without family? Open hearts of this film’s characters will help us enter into the hidden world of their moral doubts, fears, loneliness, and incurable sadness.
