The autistic 22 -year-old Oleg does not live up to his mother Marianas idea of a real man. Even worse for her, he has the tricky social life and does not show any willingness to change. But Mariana refuses to give up on her son and lets Oleg participate in a series of different therapy sessions – however dubious kinds of therapy and nothing is hidden from the camera. This includes a therapist who rides around on Oleg as if he were a horse. And another one who tells him how useless he is. But all is not bleak and lost – Oleg is suddenly unexpectedly rescued.
