Duration: 1h. 58min

The story of two couples in love. One is not quite ordinary, the other is completely unusual. Believing in her is as difficult as not believing. She is as tragic as she is light, as touching as she is tough.

        The complex, sometimes incomprehensible depth of human relations is hidden behind the absolute accessibility, at times graceful ease of narration. Freely subordinating your feelings, she will make you laugh sincerely, and just as sincerely cry.

        But most importantly, as always, it will leave an unsolved mystery. This time, the mystery of the unusual people living next to us with chromosomal aberration, which made them either flawed or chosen.
