SYNOPSIS

Аlina Makarova is a mother of six own children. Her first husband was from Ethiopia, this is why all her own children are of mixed origin. Alina got married again and now, together with her new husband Sergey, wants to adopt a boy called Danya who has been an unwanted child from his birth and never lived in a real family. The boy has serious health issues, and he is psychologically unstable. And he is white.
Alina’s older children realize what complications the adoption of the new brother might bring. But she convinces them that it’s the right thing, and they sign the adoption consent.
Danya finally comes to the Makarov family--and turns their life into hell.
Alina shows miraculous patience and pedagogical talents. Her children become her allies in raising the new son. This film is an epic panorama of a fight for love, an ode to the motherhood.
