Based on a true story
Can the thread of bad luck, violence and suffering which is braided deeply into the generations of one family be broken? Beba's mother is a woman of poor health and weak character. Beba's father is sullen and violent. Beba's brother is possessive and problematic. Beba's boyfriend is from a correctional institution. Has Beba's daughter any chance to break this vicious circle, has she got any chance to become a beloved, happy person?
Sifting through the documents of various Centres for Social Welfare, I came upon numerous horrible stories, and the saddest of them all has inspired this film. It has remained imprinted on my memory and I could not rid myself of it until I've made it into this film. This story of a vicious circle which always continues with the same violence and the same absence of love is, hopefully, a clear warning to us all that violence is not something to be quiet about.
