TIFF edition:

Karla is in love with Jonas, but doesn’t dare to contact him. Her best friend pushes Karla to call him, which results in an invitation to visit him at the orphanage he lives in.

Life is hard when there is no family at all, and Karla, who is crazy about Jonas, tries to comfort him by suggesting looking for his biological mom. They take matters into own hands, steal Jonas’ birth certificate from the principal’s drawer and jump into a train headed for the city where Jonas was born.
