Summary
Seventeen-year-old Marek feels alienated from the disabled kids in the support group he attends because of the physical disfigurement he suffered from an encounter with a dog, except for a beautiful girl in a wheelchair named Janne.
Berlin. After an encounter with a dog in which he was worsted, Marek begins attending a support group for young people with physical disabilities. Marek is dismissive of the other members of the support group, seeing little connection between their misfortunes and his own. The one exception to this is Janne, the wheelchair-bound woman with whom he has fallen in love. When a family crisis forces Marek to face his demons, he is in dire need of support. But the distance he has put between himself and the group may be too great to bridge.
