Approximately 30,000 children are homeless in Moscow, sleeping in stairways, garbage containers and underground tunnels and making homes on hot water pipes to protect themselves from the harsh winter. They panhandle and prostitute themselves for money, sniffing glue to curb hunger and to escape from the violent world around them. Yet many of them consider life on the streets a better alternative to what they experienced at home. This film examines the overwhelming crisis through intimate portraits of children living under these deplorable conditions.
