12-year-old Dan has a difficult relationship with his single mother Nadja. Nadja pays 17-year-old Anna to take care of Dan when she goes to work at night to earn a living. Anna is like an older sister and substitute mother to Dan, but for some time now this has been about more than sibling closeness for him. After an argument with his mother, Dan looks for love and intimacy with Anna, and Dan and Anna cross predefined boundaries.
