running time: 8 min.


Zdeněk and Lenka, two people who are bound by a strong bond, but are genetically incompatible. Two sons who seemed to be an image of their parents and a hope for a happy life. However only until a rare disease appeared in their children. How does a mother full of expectations and a father determined to take care of his family react when they find out that their children have not inherited the color of their eyes, but a fatal illness that predicts them only a few years of life? Is it possible to enjoy the future, dream and plan in such a situation?
The film is a show of respect and admiration for people who have not given up, learned to live in the moment and importance of the lives of others.
