“My sweet milk tooth,” whispers Ilona’s mother, gently stroking her daughter’s hair. Ilona really wanted to keep her mother, Štefica, at arm’s length. But when Štefica’s boyfriend abandons her and she needs a place to stay, Ilona feels compelled to take her in. The relationship between the two women, already strained, is put to the test.
