Director Statement

The emotional life of handicapped people is still a taboo subject. Very often they need to face stereotypical thinking, even among family.

One F*cking Wish is a story about two different points of view on disability. The Father of handicapped Petr does everything to make his son feel “normal”. However, a special attitude makes Petr feel “different”. The boy wants to prove that he doesn’t need any special care.

Is a wheelchair the real problem, or are we?
