It’s a sunny day. A single mum opens the newspaper and reads the catch-line “Brutal attack in the subway station: victim in coma”. In the article’s picture she immediately recognizes her son as one of the masked culprits. As she addresses him in desperation, he turns to illogical answers. She tries to understand her son who has become a stranger to her. In order to save what is most precious to her, she follows a difficult path.
