Bengaluru International Film Festival - BIFFES

Synopsis

Olka is seventeen years old, tomboyish in her movement with large eyes hidden behind her hair. Her nails are bitten, and her hands bear the marks of self-harm. For years, she had been looking for her mother. Her constant escapes from the orphanage landed her in a reformatory. She lives there but she is of another world: she does not care for hipster clothes or the newest smartphone. Unlike other girls, she does not want to provide sexual services to the guard for a smoke. She only wants her mother back.
