You were born on a Wednesday, and Wednesday’s children can make it anywhere they really want to – these were the last lines Maja had got from her mother before she abandoned her as a child.
Maja is now 19. She tries to fulfill this premise and achieve her greatest goal: getting custody of her own 4-year-old son – despite her self-destructive tendencies. Her struggles lead her to an unexpected opportunity and, suddenly, into an erratic love triangle.
