Two sisters, Angela and Mihaela, are sitting in the hospital and waiting for someone. While there, they remember stories from their childhood and youth. In their memories, the world seems much simpler and they have a solution for everything, up until the first big problem occurs- the news of someone’s death. We see through their stories how they managed to grow up and learn to love.
