Silviu (18) has spent his last 4 years in a juvenile prison. Smart, charming, but totally unpredictable and impulsive, he slowly gained the respect of the inmates. He is two weeks away from being released before love comes his way. Silviu gets disturbing news: his long-gone mother returned home from Italy and wants to take his younger brother away. Silviu is shocked, but contains himself. Still, he refuses to see his mother. Realizing he might be in danger of losing the one he loves the most, namely his brother, Silviu calls his mother and accepts to meet her.
