The film follows a group of abandoned adolescent street children who live in the Romanian subway system. The kids are encountered daily by commuting adults, who pass them by in the station as they starve, swindle, and steal, all while searching desperately for a fresh can of paint to get high with.

I've never seen anything sadder than a homeless eight-year-old boy sniffing paint and being punched for not begging on the streets while he's delusional, high and starving. This isn't a documentary that's just sad enough to make you feel guilty, but take no action; it's a documentary that makes you feel fucking sad enough to do anything at all, because you've taken advantage of your life.
