I am interested in the theme of an ordinary man, one out of the millions, who takes part in the mass xenophobic soul with his own tiny, ignorant particle, when he is confronted with the consequences of hatred in a hard way through events that occur in his own family.
I have the feeling that there exists just a very thin line between affiliation to our own people, to people just like me on the one hand, and a broken nose on the other, when I stop being in harmony with them. I would like to try to depict evil and the mistakes that can lead to it in our unstable existence.
