Teenager Mike locks himself in his room without any hint. He’s not sick. He has consciously decided not to take part in the life outside anymore. The parents beg, threaten and despair, only the younger sister suspects what is going on with Mike. Family cohesion is being put to the test and everyone is developing their own ways of coping with it. Secrets reveal, faiths dissolve, hidden gems alight in the tiny corridor while the door becomes a mirror of their own lives.
