A child witnesses events involving his mother that only a grown-up should know. This movie depicts a drama that tells of the anxiety and confusion brought on by this knowledge seen through the eyes of a child. He enters the world of adults and should take his father's place - defend, understand, forgive... The black and white imagery and music provide an effective match to the gloomy atmosphere of this work.
