This is a story of a ruined family, a family with a tangle of morbid secrets tied into such a knot you can only cut it off. A teen girl is a prisoner of the situation, concealing from her ill mother all the abuse she suffers from her drinking stepfather. Her desperation she can only express in her drawings. The girl's friendship with a young man helps her to become strong and break away from the macabre trap. As time passes on, she will become mature - to connect all dots and to find her solid ground amongst life tribulations.
