director: Janek Jirků
original title: Proč právě my?
country: Czech Republic
running time: 39 min.
synopsisThe miniseries follows the stories of four families who have to deal with the worst that can happen to parents. With the child's illness. The director deliberately chose the stories of child patients from different age groups – from toddlers to teenagers – for the delicate subject. Fortunately, three of the sick children responded very well to chemotherapy and are doing well today. Tomáš, who wanted filming, has not been so lucky yet.
