On the outskirts of Bucharest, two 14-year-olds live by themselves in an apartment, without their families. How is it that they got here? What about their past? Alex and Petronel struggle to cope with daily life as adults. At any rate, they’ve never been allowed a real childhood. Casa Mia follows the two main characters in their thoughts and in their memories of their past lives spent with their families and on the streets. The film accompanies them as they reveal their dreams and set out for two different destinations. Alex struggles to make his dream come true, while Petronel takes a trip back in time, in search of love from his family. But at home all he finds is disappointment.
