The director Olga Arlauskas admitted that work on the film was for a film crew not film production, and a civil act. Olga has hoped that the film will get on the big screen and that at people who heard nothing about an inklyuziya and at all did not see people with disability (and such people, strangely enough, much), in consciousness revolution will be made.

Elena Topoleva (the member of Public chamber) has assured that members of Public chamber and authorities are engaged in a subject of change of the relation to people with disability much.

In the film many thorny questions are lifted: refusal of parents of children with disability, assignment of nonexistent diagnoses – «the more at you diagnoses, the is less than responsibility for to what you will teach», unwillingness of people to be near disabled people – whether it be the pool, school or a yard. But, nevertheless, authors of the film could sustain true intonation: not to roll down in terrible dramatic nature and at the same time not to turn a subject into an optimistical popular print.

Producer Nikita Tikhonov-Rau has hoped that the film will have big life and it will be seen by people who make decisions, i.e. officials and representatives of power structures.

Discussion of the film was very live. It wanted to much to express. Someone has agreed with authors, someone has considered that it is much more problems, than is shown in the film, someone looks at an inklyuziya with optimism, someone is not present, but all were unanimous in one: heroes of the film are magnificent in the sincerity, openness, honesty, purity.

Dzhennet Bazarova, the heroine of the film, has told that there is nothing terrible that children approach and ask it, why it in a wheelchair. She considers that children can understand it better, than adults who for some reason are afraid of special children. Serezha Ryabtsev too has agreed, it is possible what to ask, after all other children should understand, why it is difficult to them to go. And here adults should listen to children and to be more delicate.
