Vi der blev tilbage
Society has fallen apart and ten-year old Adam is one of the few kids left in the city. Adults have surrendered to fear and left the city. Teacher Carlo is the only grown-up left, but when his blood too turns grey he leaves. Adam and Ida try to understand the madness. Adam holds onto hope until Ida, as the first child, is struck by the same despondency as the grown-ups. Adam struggles to keep the rest of the kids together so they can make the city a place worth living. More importantly, he wants to kiss Ida so her blood will turn red again.
