Alina Makarova is a mother of six children, five of her own and one adopted. Her ex-husband is from Ethiopia, which is why all her own children are of mixed origin.
Alina has decided to adopt a white boy with mental health problems. Alina’s older children realise what complications the adoption might bring, and are afraid that there won’t be enough room, time and love for everyone. But she convinces them that it’s the right thing. Alina shows miraculous patience and pedagogical talents. Her children become her allies in raising the new son. This film is an epic panorama of a fight for love, and an ode to motherhood.
Will the characters have enough good will and sufficient child-raising skills to tame – and love – the little tyrant? A film for those who have nerves of steel as it takes viewers to the very centre of the family hell.
