The Mother’s Day
On mother’s day, 16-year-old Nerka, with his other friends from lower class families, have a tradition to steal flowers to give to their mothers. Even though this year is different for Nerka, as he doesn’t know where his mother lives at the moment, he is still determined to greet her. This journey reveals an unexpected truth.
