A 15-year-old teenager, misunderstood by the world. His worldly and haughty young stepmother who is capable of true feelings and genuine attachment only on the verge of death. The debuting actress who is naturally untalented, but has a passionate love for life. The lives of three people collide and fancifully intertwine, closely linking their fates. This is a tragicomedy about the inscrutability of love and destiny, about the vulnerability of our existence.
