A young teenage girl is sent to an orphanage when she becomes too much for her mother to handle. Lilika (Dragana Kalaba) is sent to the institution after her mother (Tamara Miletic) discovers she is stealing fruit from the local market. She is very protective of her younger brother and a mentally challenged friend, and takes a liking to her counselor (Branko Plesa). She dreams of having an ordinary life and escaping the juvenile home she regards as a prison. Lilika fantasizes about her future as she hopes for a way out of the orphanage.
