An intimate relationship between a teenager son and his homeless mother who are trying to keep together in a homeless shelter in Budapest, Hungary.

Norbi is 15 years old. He was separated from his mother 4 years ago when he got into children’s home in Budapest, Hungary. His biggest dream is to live together with her again as they did before. The connection between them is so strong that Norbi tries to spend as much time with her as he can in a homeless shelter where she lives. The film through micro situations gives us an inside view of their intimate relationship and hopeless effort to change their life. The conversations they share during their simple moments together reflect the dramatic intensity of their everyday life.
