Mama, padariau pusryčius. Aš nenoriu į mokyklą. Noriu būti su tavim.

The centre of 25-year-old Marja’s life is her 7-yearold daughter, Julia. Marja works nights, so she can spend her days with Julia, playing, being silly and telling stories about The Princess of Egypt and her mother. The harmony of the pair’s home is disturbed when they come across Kamaran, an Iranian immigrant who realizes that he must be Julia’s father. Kamaran wants to connect with his daughter and begins to pressure Marja.
