Hope and expectations can make you strong, but when reality destroys illusions a twelve year old boy grows fast. He is a 12-year-old boy and like any other boy, he likes to play games and to collect pieces of stained colorful glass. But his daily life consists of a working at the illegal vodka distillery, where his job is to deliver the vodka bottles to the alcohol consumers, like small cafes and little booths, a prostitute here and a drunk there. He’s paying share of his income to street criminals and tries to stay away from the eyes of policemen. One day the mother tells the boy, that the father is arriving in few days after a long absence. Hoping, until now unknown father is taking them away, Susa starts his new life immediately – taking all the efforts to say goodbye to the old life.
