A story of kids, skaters and musicians, who are lost in a controversial reality of a post-Soviet country – a country in a distracted condition, where one can be crushed by the power of church and politics. They are searching the nonexistent spots for their freedom and a romantic state of mind in an adult world which has not much to offer. They try to find their own values and their own ways to express their protest through transforming the established into their playground. They cover the voice of violence and aggression around them through their own voices.
