In this intimate portrait, we enter the chaotic and colorful world of Shamira’s family. Her dad Pempy, has been addicted to heroin and crack for more than thirty years and has a long criminal record. Now that he is getting older, his lifestyle is taking a toll on him and his condition worsening.
Simultaneously his son Andy, Shamira’s brother, is following in his father’s footsteps. He too seems to be caught up in a life of crime and drugs. But they both counter their seemingly desperate situation with lots of resilience and humor. Shamira has an ambiguous relationship with both men and when tragedy struck in Shamira’s personal life, it unfolds the way she herself has been affected by the vicious circle trapping her father and brother.
