Beata and her mother are Romani from Hungary. They don’t have any family in Sweden. They are stuck with each other, and have lived under the same roof since Beata was born. It is Beatas birthday, she is turning 23, but she has still not been able to set herself free from her mom Inci. This is a film about growing up into adulthood, about finding your own identity and being comfortable about it.
