Based on a true story dating back to 1985 when two Polish boys, a teenager and his little brother, escaped from communist Poland all the way to Sweden, hidden under a truck. In the movie, their destination has been changed to Denmark.
An alcoholic pill-popping mother who works in a café has a young son of perhaps eight or ten and makes her son's life most demanding however he manages remarkably well to be an A student and even take care of his mother more than she takes care of him. He runs into aggression problems at school and for steeling lunches to fill his need. The mother only moves him from one school to another. He ends up eventually in an institution. One of the girls in there asks him to be her brother and tells him "you can beat me if you want but would you be my brother?" There is a sort of salvation in the end for the mother and son when a strong-armed man comes into their life and the boy reluctantly goes back to the mother. There is much more to the film, a series of male friends, the mother brings home at night, an alcoholic older woman, a neighbor who sells vodka from her apartment after hours, police raids, crises at home, attempted suicide by the mother.
