SYNOPSIS: The struggle of a Polish mother who is living in Hungary, for finding back her 12 years old lost kid, Eric; the suffering of a wife imprisoned in an unhappy marriage, in a country where she feels like a stranger; a destroyed woman, but who would do anything for her son. Three sides of a person enclosed in a single character that explains how impetuous a woman can be when her deepest bonds are in danger.
