Observed over a decade (13 years), this documentary follows Katka, Lada and Jana through their world of drugs, prison, love and responsibility. They live on the streets of Prague, hustling for drugs, stealing, attempting murder. Lada and Jana end up in prison. Katka ends up expecting a child. Will she manage to overcome this most difficult battle of her life? This is not a film about drug abuse, but a film about the replenishing power of life, about values and their price, about mothers and their relationship with their children.
