Story

The filmmakers accompanied the author of the photographic project and his models – young people with Down Syndrome who, with the help of the photographer, stylists, and their own imagination, impersonated various characters known from the world of fairy-tales and pop culture, revealing through the stylized frames a world of dreams and a piece of truth: about themselves, about universal desires. During one and a half year authors of the film were observing this project, filming Oiko Petersen meetings with his models. Oiko was searching for an answer about their dreams, expectations and sensibility.
