Plot synopsis
No one doubts that children are our future. But what happens to a child who is not like the rest? Disabled, for example? How are they different from their peers? Do they dream of different things? Do they laugh and cry differently? Home, town, school, the sun, the wind – these things are shared by all. However, certain forces in this world make it so that children with limited abilities are isolated from the others. The film shows what inclusion looks like in practice, when disabled children live alongside the rest, attend a regular school, and when they are not subjected to the delineation of “in, out”. The young heroes tell the stories of their own lives and problems.
