Ki is a lively, hungry-for-life woman and mother of two-year-old Pio. As she rushes, she crashes into Miko, bringing about a meeting of two worlds that in fact should never have met. This is the beginning of a long journey to self-discovery and learning about responsibility. Ki refuses to accept the limitations that stem from taking care of her own child. Not wanting to go down the same path as her own mother, Ki flees from the stereotype of the tired and lonely single mother. She tries to live a colourful and fast-paced life. Ki’s relationships with men are far from promising, although it is these difficult relationships that help her mature into being capable of love and taking responsibility for herself and for her son.
