Director Statement

When I thought, if my child asks "What is death?", I would like to tell a fairy tale that will calm down and make it clear that death is not as scary as it is described. After all, I made this film. It is full of life, it is about experiences, the search for sensations and peace after the loss of a loved one person, about rethinking of death and the difficulties that exist in our lives.
