Spring 1995 - after the closure of the Needle Park and the public drug scene in Zurich, eleven-year-old Mia and her heroin addicted mother Sandrine are relocated to the countryside. While caring for her mother, Mia spends time with her imaginary friend and a gang of local teenage misfits. These friendships finally give her the strength to rebel and break free from her abusive mother.

17.11 screening will be followed by a discussion panel with the CEO of Peaasi.ee and clinical psychologist Anna-Kaisa Oidermaa.
