The harsh realities of growing up homeless in Siberia. Following the break up of the Soviet union, a gang of children from broken homes made a new life together inside the derelict buildings of a once secret weapons manufacturing city.

Despite their efforts to care for one another, three members of their group died. For the survivors: they must try against hopeless odds to turn their lives around.
