This story does not take place in shanty towns or in an exotic world of poverty in a hot country. The story of Baby (a)lone unfolds right in the heart of modern Europe. A Europe that has committed itself to providing its future generations with everything. And yet things do not turn out as expected. At only 13 years old, they know all about violence, drugs and pornography. They live with all this in the world to which they are closest and most accustomed: their school. Two of these disorientated children, these children who grow up too quickly, form a couple. As a pair you feel less alone, or perhaps you feel understood. As their love affair goes on, our very young teenagers will try to create a world of hopes and dreams for themselves. A headlong rush, with no other purpose than to search for the love that is so desperately missing from their lives. A brutal and violent headlong rush that marks their lives with moments of childlike happiness the likes of which they have never experienced before.
