Storyline

Based on a true story, Alina is fifteen when her stepfather, a stately Nigerian, is arrested for dealing drugs and her world is turned upside-down. Waiting for a trial date is a painstaking ordeal, as visits to the detention centre take their toll on the once harmonious patchwork family. It's up to Alina to look after her little sister and to support her mother who doesn't know what to believe anymore. Can Alina carry the weight of her new responsibilities and separate innocence from guilt and right from wrong? This heartfelt coming-of-age story asks whether there is any room for youthful idealism in a world dictated by rules, regulations and prejudices.
