Synopsis:
Fia thinks everyone is a clown. Except herself, her mother… and Bustric. This is a family film about eight-year-old Fia who for a long time has been a mother for her own mother. She has grown up in an «upside down» world where it is important that mother is never sad. But one day the police show up, Fia becomes the focus, and Fia’s life will never be the same again. Fortunately she finds an ally in the magician and clown Bustric, who shows up whenever she really needs him. Because she had actually made up her mind: School was only supposed to last three months. If it’s difficult to have one mother, having two is like an earthquake.
