Natalia is 17 and she has just had a baby. However, it was not a duff, because Natalia had planned it to happen. She and her boyfriend Kuba are trying to cope with parental duties, although they are not exactly adults themselves... Natalia wanted a baby, because it is cool to have one. All young celebrities have kids — take Britney Spears or Nicole Richie as examples. But why would she really decide to become a mother at such a young age? Maybe the answer to that can be found on Internet blogs, written by teenage girls? They want a child to have somebody, who would love them for real, and to have somebody to love.
Baby Blues is a bold, truthful, shocking, but also slightly comical portrait of a generation on young Poles — the generation of Facebook, text messages, blogs, and fast foods.
