The movie is a simple story about reconciliation. At the age of nine or ten, a breakthrough occurs. A small person crosses a barrier, begins to perceive the world differently, changes his attitude towards events. Deeper feelings surface, new emotions. How to cope with them, tame them, process them?
What is better, what attitude to life is more appropriate? One based on lying to oneself, immersing in our own, imagined world? Or perhaps a realistic one, more brutal, but one that is well-grounded? But is it worth it?
