    Since she was little, Asya has been taking care of stray dogs at the Nadezhda shelter, where her mother worked as a caretaker. Years later, they remember this period of their lives as one of the best. The film also introduces us to Rosalin Schmich, who is part of a group of volunteers who help the Municipal Dog Shelter in Gorni Bogrov.
