For 31-year-old Kira Kovalenko, this is the second director's work in a feature film. The film tells about a resident of a North Ossetian city who brings up sons and a daughter. His overprotection and strictness only alienate his children – they all want to escape from under his parental wing in order to start living on their own.

For me, the topic of freedom as a burden became the most important during the work on this film, – Kovalenko shared.
