Plot synopsis
Gosha, a 15-year-old high school student from Moscow, has a lot of problems: fights at school, unhappy love and misunderstanding from his parents. Gosha's parents are obsessed with the idea of saving all the children left without a family or a home, they have already adopted three children and are preparing to welcome a fourth into their home. Gosha feels he no longer has a place in his home and in his parents' hearts. Performing in a stand up club is his only breath of fresh air, an attempt to talk about his problems and find a solution. And for Gosha's parents, this public confession of their son shocks them and leads to family psychotherapy that will help them become aware of their problems.
