The film touches the problem of teenage girls prostitution. Junior high school students who are doing rather poorly at school are wandering around shopping malls in search for sponsors, who would buy them clothes, small digital equipment or simply give them money in exchange for sex.

2013 Berlin IFF – Generation 14plus Award – Special Mention, Generation 14plus Award – Best Feature-length Film

Bold, genuine and shocking picture of a young generation of Poles today, though not deprived of humour. Generation of Facebook, SMSes, blogs and fast foods. The film concentrates on a seventeen-year-old girl who becomes a mum. She wanted to have a child because apparently it is cool to have one. All young celebrities such as Britney Spears or Nicole Richie have babies.
