Aneta rebelled at the age of 19. She went to prison for murder. Nine year later, while serving her sentence, she takes up a job of a carer. Every day she leaves the prison to go to the nursing home to look after Helena who suffers from rheumatism. By talking to the old lady Aneta realises how much she has in life and starts to believe in herself before the hard test which is ahead of her.
