This series is about residents of the children's home for people with physical or mental disabilities in Smila, Ukraine. 180 persons from 4 to 35 years old live here constantly. They are completely isolated from society and most of them never left the orphanage. In my country we have no programm of adaptation these people to real life in society. They have to live all their life in social institutions without any hope of assimilating into the real world. Nobody speaks publicly about this problem. I wanted people to see their faces and look deep inside their souls .
