A documentary on the plight of the estimated 20,000 orphaned, runaway and sometimes disturbed children who live on the streets of Romania. Focusing on five subjects filmed over a year, the director prefers direct observation to commentary. Regrettably, these stagnating lives make torpid viewing. The film coasts for 50 minutes, and only picks up when young Mihai makes a trip to the family house he refuses to regard as home.
