Storyline

Alice, a buoyant and impertinent red-hair teenager is far from the charming little girl her mother adopted as she was unable to have a child of her own. Being an endless source of problems and affected by the specter of her mother's disappointments, Alice acts with her back against the wall, forging lies and blurring lines between the fiction she designs for herself and the reality of her existence. Until her mother discovers she is pregnant. Written by AnonymusB

As depressing as it may seem, this Romanian movie is quite well done, even if the director strives to concomitantly treat too many subjects: sterility and adoption, divorce, early pregnancy, adolescence, father absence, ...
