Everyday life in a children’s home, far from any sociological study. Marvin, age 10, returns to his mother and his younger sister. How can family life be continued? From autumn 2008 to summer 2009 I visited the children in the children’s home and Marvin’s family at home. The film deals with the things I saw and experienced. There are gaps. Sometimes I think I recognize traces or connections. The conflicts remain.
