A documentary series about people who have been declared incapacitated by the state, guardianship authorities and the closest relatives, probably because they are all foster people of the PNH (psychoneurological hospitals). Yes, these guys have great limitations in their abilities: someone can't walk, speak, or write, many of them were abandoned by their parents, and actually by society, but "incapacitated" people don't consider themselves as such and prove their position by their actions.

The indirect goal of this series is to give hope to families with disabled children, so that parents do not give up on them by placing their children in psychoneurological hospitals, where their health often gets worse and their development is out of the question, but they could have the opportunity to participate in their children's lives in the assisted living facilities. The authors also hope that after watching this series, something may change in the social policy of our state and among ordinary citizens towards people with disabilities.
The mission of this project is simple - to show that next to us there are those who, in addition to caring, need to be and feel part of society, and we can not deprive them of this feeling.
