Director's statement
"It tells a story about children who, contrary to popular belief, have their own system of values, wishes, as well as a sense of justice. Aya is a modern hero, street hero, she’s the nameless everyday superhero, and as every superhero, in the end she manages to win. […] This is a story about revenge and forgiveness, refracted through the feeling of being in love. […] In the end, the main question of our story should be: how can you find your way in a world which only gives reasons to hate - how do you find a pure place within yourself?".
