No doubt, that children - our future. But what happens if the children - unusual? For example, they have a disability? How they differ from the kids of their age? Do they dream about something different? Do they laugh and cry in a different way?
The school, the sun and the wind are common. But somehow, some adults insist, that kids with disabilities should not be together with others". Parents expose their children with disabilities and leave them in the orphanage.
Our film will show how, in practice it looks like to live in a family and learn in an ordirnary school for kids with disabilities. They know how to make friends, not dividing people into "some in" and "some out". Children should grow up all together.
Children will tell about themselves. And about us.
