Logline
Main characters - people with disabilities, participate as actors in theatrical productions. The “stage” for them is not therapy or entertainment. This is the only way of life in which they do not have limited opportunities, because for creativity no physical limitations matter. The viewers have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the life of this community and to feel the true love, openness and power of people, who seemingly have nothing to hope for in their life. The film was shot with the participation of theatrical companies from Lithuania, Poland, Ukraine, and Belarus.
