A child jumping on a trampoline in the park, and a rainstorm breaking over the city: this is the crossroads where our three stories meet. Running away from her mother, seven-year-old Lina meets teenage dreamer Nika and mother-to-be Nikolina. Superficially very different, they act as mirrors into one another's lives, providing a glimpse into what Lina's own future might hold. Their chance encounter will open up new possibilities and reveal the fault lines in their families that until now, have been carefully hidden from sight. The little girl is still wants to win her mother’s love, the teenage girl dreams of escaping from a mother’s love gone sour, and the pregnant woman is terrified of repeating the abusive cycle of her childhood. This is not a conventional love story, but it is, absolutely, a film about the double-edged nature of love.
