When Daria's boyfriend is sentenced to four years in prison, her mother sends her to rehab. The timid Daria, who started taking heroin during their relationship, suddenly finds herself all alone amongst men in a closed ward. And everyone wants something from her. At first it's just little things: a hug or a dose of methadone. Soon, however, it becomes clear who is in charge and can take whatever he wants. In this debut production, inspired by her own experiences, director Monica Stan subtly narrates the constantly shifting balance of power between Daria and the men. A barely tangible yet deadly serious fight for survival begins.
