A statuesque and charismatic woman is trying to figure out what she wants in life. She has a good job as a commercial artist and designer, a spacious Brooklyn apartment, and three boyfriends. Each of them is far from her ideal man, but each fulfills a different need for her. Between her juggling act--accompanied by total honesty about who she is and what she's doing--and the childish squabbling of the three men, she makes some rather nebulous points about gender relations and the double standard

Il film è composto da sette episodi che hanno come filo conduttore l’infanzia in contesti sociali problematici. Tanza, questo il nome del giovane protagonista che dà il titolo all’episodio, è un bambino soldato in un non precisato Paese africano in gierra. Dopo che tutti i membri della sua famiglia sono stati sterminati davanti ai suoi occhi per motivi etnici decide di unirsi ad una banda di piccoli guerriglieri. Quando gli viene affidata la missione di piazzare la bomba in un villaggio di donne e bambini non si tira indietro ma ben presto scopre che l’obiettivo dell’attentato è la scuola elementare che anche lui ha frequentato e finisce per disinnescare l’ordigno. “Blue Gipsy” è ambientato in un carcere minorile serbo nel quale il giovane Uros sta trascorrendo gli ultimi giorni di pena. Il ragazzo possiede un innato talento per il borseggio ma in carcere ha imparato a tagliare i capelli e vorrebbe andare a lavorare per lo zio parrucchiere. Il padre, un criminale dall’indole violenta, ha invece per lui altri progetti. La festa del carcere diventa anche l’occasione per celebrare la sua liberazione ma poche centinaia di metri fuori dalla prigione eccolo di nuovo costretto ad un furto. Nella fuga disperata Uros finisce per scavalcare di nuovo le mura rassicuranti e protettive del carcere. La protagonista di “Jesus Children of America” è Blanca, una ragazzina di colore che abita a New York. Il padre, reduce dalla guerra del golfo, ha contratto il virus H.I.V. trasmettendolo alla madre e quindi alla bambina durante la gravidanza. Gli amici di scuola la prendono in giro in modo sempre più pesante e violento ed arrivano a discriminarla in tutte le attività. Blanca decide allora di rivolgersi ad un’associazione che offre assistenza psicologica ai ragazzi malati: lì si sente finalmente accolta ed accettata. Bilu e Joao, nell’episodio omonimo, sono sorella e fratello e vivono di piccoli espedienti ai margini di San Paolo del Brasile. Dall’alba fino a notte inoltrata girano instancabilmente da un capo all’altro della metropoli in cerca di rifiuti riciclabili da poter vendere per pochi spiccioli. Affrontano tutti i pericoli e le situazioni problematiche con grande spirito d’iniziativa e buon umore. Jonathan, il personaggio che dà il titolo al quinto episodio, è un fotografo di guerra inglese logorato psicologicamente dal suo lavoro. Mentre attende di partire per l’ennesimo viaggio in zone di guerra si lascia andare ad un ricordo-sogno nel quale si rivede bambino in compagnia di due amici d’infanzia. Il ricordo remoto si fonde con quelli molto più recenti e Jonathan si ritrova a condividere la sorte dei bambini sotto i bombardamenti. L’esperienza lo rende più consapevole e pronto per affrontare il nuovo viaggio. Ciro è un ragazzino della periferia degradata di Napoli. Vive di piccoli furti compiuti con un coetaneo e sogna di fuggire da una realtà sociale opprimente e da una situazione familiare insopportabile. Attorno a lui il coro dei luoghi comuni sordi ad una possibile speranza di cambiamento. Song Song e Little Cat sono due bambine dalle esistenze agli antipodi: la prima vive nel lusso ma la separazione dei genitori getta lei e la madre nella più totale apatia; la seconda invece è una trovatella che è stata allevata da un vagabondo estremamente povero ma molto affettuoso. L’unico punto di contatto tra le due piccole protagoniste è una bambola che, gettata per noia da Song Song sotto un cavalcavia, viene raccolta da Little Cat e diventa la sua amica più preziosa
