Pavalas is sitting on the grass in a park and writing in a notebook.…“One missing mother… blue eyes…”. She left and didn’t come back. He meets Alina. He is asking her too …”Did you see her?”
Alina and her husband Peter, lost their son in a car accident. They came in Moldavia, where Alina was born, trying to adopt a child. Pavalas remind her of his son. Same age…

Irina fled from Italy and came back to find her child. She meets her friend, Tatiana and they went find Pavalas in Transnistria (part of Moldavia where the 14 Army is settled). The two women go through many mishaps….

Unfortunately Bruno, the pimp, finds Irina. He have to teach that “whore” a lesson. He believes of himself that he is too nice… after all, he doesn’t beat them like other pimps do. He gave Irina 3 days in order to sell the child and give him back the money that he invested in her. He is threaten her: “The money or the boy”. He has good connection on the children market, too.
Irina is terrified. She is trying to fight him in any way she can and to find a solution for Pavalas.

But the tragedy happened. Irina dies in his son arms. She had only 7 days to repair everything and to prove to her son that her love for him will never die. She didn’t want to leave him … she was forced to. But now it’s too late for them.

The story is only fiction or is the reality of our days?
