十九歲的瑪雅與男友克里斯住在郊區一間破房子裡,兩人有個四歲的兒子,被安置在他們從前住的孤兒院裡。克里斯並沒有身為爸爸的自覺,甚至抗拒面對這個事實,仍成天和一幫兄弟四處鬼混。相反地,瑪雅不願和從前拋下自己的母親一樣,所以時常搭火車去探望兒子,並積極地爭取監護權。然而,這對於年紀尚輕的她並不容易,她必須想辦法證明自己的能力......
片中瑪雅保有少女的叛逆與憤怒,卻不被嚴苛的現實壓扁,反而長出堅毅溫柔的一面,展現女性生命強韌力量。本片是匈牙利導演莉莉.霍瓦特的第一部劇情長片,有著達頓兄弟自然流暢的社會寫實筆觸,白描處於匈牙利社會邊緣小人物之處境,成熟的表現令人驚豔。

19-year-old Maja has a little mute son who is left at an orphanage where she grew up with the father of the son, Krisz, with whom she still lives together as a couple on the outskirts of Budapest. Despite being a teenage mother, Maja is desperate to regain custody of her boy so that the latter would live a better life than her own. Her chance to start life anew comes when she wins a grant to set up her own laundromat business.
