Jojo is a young boy who lives with his quick-tempered dad. He is often home alone, and despite his youth he must grow up quickly and care for himself. Jojo has no friends, and when he is not taking care of household chores, he just wanders around in the neighbourhood. He finds an abandoned baby jackdaw that has fallen out of its nest, and against his father's wishes he takes the bird home. The bird becomes Jojo's only true friend, and helps him overcome the endless waiting for his mom's return. Boudewijn Koole, who directs this minimalistic drama about a boy, his best friend and deeply hidden trauma, has won several best debut awards, including Berlinale and the European Film Awards.
