Director's Statement

Millions of people around the world have to leave their families and places of origin because this is the only way they can be themselves and live freely. And there are millions of families who will never fully know their sons and daughters, and this is an abyss that is not customary to talk about. This story is based on the lives of real people and explores intolerance to LGBTQ community members from the side of their closest people – parents, brothers, and sisters.
