In today’s Ethiopia of 85 million citizens, each year thousands of children end up in orphanages, handed over by parents who are unable to raise them or found abandoned even a few days after they are born. The film records daily life behind the walls of one of these institutions, in which a hard-working staff of nannies, nurses and volunteers take care of about fifty children aged from a few months to twelve years. Filmed in cinema-verite style and based on observation, it explores the complex fabric of the diverse, transient community that lives isolated in this home away from home.
