On the morning of her 16th birthday, Lou runs to the kitchen full of anticipation only to find total chaos. She immediately knows that her mother had another mental breakdown -and that she has to take care of her. But then her crush Matz rings the door and invites her to a concert. Lou is torn between the self-sacrifice for her mother and her feelings for Matz. When Matz surprises her with a present and an invitation to a concert, the evening takes a 180° turn.
