A happy, loving family is shattered when the mother dies from cancer. The father takes up drinking again and soon disappears completely from the family. This leaves 17-year-old Henrik alone with his two younger siblings to care for. Social services are knocking at their door, and Henrik works hard to keep them away and patch a life together for the three of them. Henrik would rather play football and kiss girls, but has to sacrifice his dreams in order to keep his family going. When cheerful Elvira turns up, she brings love and meaning back into their lives.

The second Film by director Reza Bagher, whose first "Wings of Glass" won many awards around the world.
