Alex has a crush on the pretty Vika. But she seems to be unreachable. Her school and the block she lives on are enemy territory for Alex. He has to demonstrate courage and take some punches before Vika returns his feelings. It isn‘t only the thugs on the street that threaten their fragile happiness: Alex and Vika also have to overcome their own fears and doubts. Every sentence, every touch is a new world. Amidst endless expanses of dismal high-rise blocks, the film tells the story of a first love as turbulent as it is moving.
