Directors statement
 
 
We love life. We love it the way it is, we love every second and every day, every color, wind, sound however strange and cruel it is, however fragile it is like a glass trinket…
 
The idea is the irrefutability. When you are unable to change what has already happened. Unfortunately it is not always that we become the masters of the situation and it is not always that we make the right decision, but we almost always answer for every step we make. There are some cruel scenes in the film, which become counterbalance and change the heroes, open up their eyes, thus changing their behavior.
 
The glass trinket is the fragile symbol the film tells about. It is the fragile relationship we have when we are in love, it is the fragile feeling when the girl gets pregnant, it is the situation when every second is in danger and at the same time precious.
 
This film is about valuing love and life, the only thing that makes us live.
