Irina is a single mother from Ukraine who lives in a small Czech town. When her son is attacked, the entire town stands with her family in condemning the Roma neighbours who allegedly committed the crime. After Irina's son wakes up in the hospital, it becomes hard to tell the difference between truth and lie… The story of a woman's emotional journey to find justice in a racist society and, despite all the stereotypes, to stay true to herself.
