Outside a maternity ward, a Roma family is announced their underage daughter has just had a baby girl. Her father Pardica doesn?t seem to celebrate the moment; he is very displeased with this early pregnancy, for which he blames his wife. However, things become even tenser when a hospital employee asks them to sign some papers and discovers issues related to their IDs and their status as parents of the underage new mother. The imminent danger of state authorities separating them from their daughter determines Pardica to take action.
