We follow the mother of a small boy from morning to evening. Her day is entirely subjected to the child and she doesn’t manage to have a single moment for herself throughout the day. The father is only a dear guest in the flat who is always in a hurry and when he is present, he is asleep. The boy lives in an imaginary world where he is Peter Pan and mother is sometimes Wandy, but mainly Captain Cook.
