Director's Notes

In this work, each family member has his or her own needs. And because of their individual needs and desires reduces them to ordinary human being or even strangers. Their behaviour and actions are no longer bound by the concept of family. The characters blame no one nor blame themselves as fault for the problems. Nor are they actively seeking solutions and answers. Each day they just live through their daily routine, to be able to continue the next day, without realizing their emotional needs. And by making some little changes, maybe the characters will discover what they need at the end of the day
