A young debuting actress dreams of being a famous star admired by everybody. She lacks talent so she's planning to have plastic surgery to help her succeed. She is always an optimist, with an infectiously carefree attitude and joie de vivre. The extremely sensitive 15-year-old boy feeling at odds with the world is her opposite. He is misunderstood by his father and his stepmother, a worldly and haughty woman who is capable of true feelings only on the verge of death. A tragicomedy about destiny, the vulnerability of our existence and the inscrutability of love, a story about people whose lives are fancifully intertwined. Variety magazine has placed the director, award-wining Anna Melikian, on its list of the world's top 10 most promising film directors.
