Christina belongs to the so called “lost generation”- the young people who work for the minimum wage and live with their parents, because they can’t afford to move out. But Christina has had enough. With the little money she has, she decides to rent a flat and live on her own, even if it’s only for a while. In the process, she’ll discover herself and what she really wants from life, far from her mother’s watchful eye.
