I'm a real fan of stories about children lost in life because of parents that don't seem to care about them, or a society that looks another place when this things happen. Jack tries to survive in Berlin, day and night, looking after his young brother Manuel, with nothing to eat, sleeping in an old car, facing adults, and trying desperately to find his mother, this idea moves them with enthusiasm despite the difficulties they are finding every minute. The main characters, two young boys, 10 and 4 years old, are amazing, their looks, their expressions, their illusion trying to go back home, will make you think that even in an modern and European city, childhood is not always the place you always want to return.
