Additional Information

Although Nana is not even 16, she has to care for her younger half-brother and half-sister Tatiana and Toto, as well as for their mother Roberta. As Roberta, who has three children from three different men, is “the most embarrassing figure in the universe and the most incompetent mother of all times.” At least this is the opinion of Nana, who is fed up with Roberta’s many amorous adventures. The situation is really serious when one day the youth welfare office is threatening to send the children to a home. Roberta vows to do better, seek a regular job and stay away from men. But Nana and Tatiana are concerned that their mother cannot go without any amorous adventures for long. Therefore they decide to become active and seek out a sensible partner for Roberta, who may perhaps even be a good substitute father. They choose the dedicated and humorous doctor Eduardo, who has just moved to their village. But then Nana herself falls in love with the much older man.
