Blossom Valley


A story of young lovers on the run, of their desire for freedom and place in the sun. It’s an unusual love story as there is no indication they ever become physical lovers.
Bianka (20) finds herself drifting in the suburbs without any particular purpose. She has a sudden urge to steal a baby, which she does, but now she has to find a father and a home. When none of her ex-boyfriends are willing to lend a hand, the only one happy to help is Laci (21) who is mentally disabled and living in a workers’ hostel. While Bianka sees this whole situation as little less than an exciting role play, Laci develops feelings for her and will do whatever it takes to ensure a happy family life.
