Synopsis

Based on the true story of an impoverished, unemployed mother of seven living under subhuman conditions in a cave-like basement of a block of flats in newly post-communist Romania. When her drunken husband loses his job and eventually goes away, her sad reality gets even bleaker as she struggles to support her children.
