Jonas is already head of the family at just 12 years of age. He has been helping his two younger siblings and supporting his mother, Sabine, since his father left. Sabine is very loving towards her children but she often loses her patience and disappears into her room for the day. But when she goes to spend a weekend there, the days grow into weeks in which the three children hear nothing from their mother. With no food or money the house has become more like a haunted castle: a spiderweb house. While on the hunt for something to eat, Jonas meets a young man who is not quite right in the head. But he takes Jonas under his wing and shows him how to get by in a world without adults.
