When Marham runs away, she first feels seduced by the frivolous attitudes of the youth culture scene she finds herself in. Yet she soon finds new kinds of hardships and must make uncomfortable compromises in order to find her way. Shifting time frames provide an enigmatic edge in this raw and gripping drama, which passes beautifully from moments of nerve-wracking tension to the more intimate scenes of household affairs and familial support.
