This is a realistic story of an 18 year old girl who is pregnant and has only one choose to survive: sell her child to Canada. She is already contacted with Katinka (Kati Outinen great finnish actress) who is dealing with such children. But Kisirma (the girl) has an idea. She deeply wants to find her mother, since she is grewn up in an institut for all those who has no family. She found a path to her grandfather who can help her out. Her mother lives in Canada as well. So when she arrived in Canada, looked after her mother. And she found her. Her emotions tells : selling her child is not good. That is what her mother did 18 years ago! So she come back to Hungary, find love and take the child. Very emotionous and realistic story with great actress Eszter Bagaméri who received the Best Actress award at the Hungarian Film Awards in 2004 for this film. It tells us in a very unusal way that how a teenagers life turns upside down and how her emotions became from an average teenagers emotions into an adults. A must see.
