The film offers a psychological analysis of the contradictions in the life of contemporary family
This film is usually regarded as being one of Ivanka Grybcheva's children's films, whereas it should be seen as a transition to her subsequent films for adults. In contrast to many films about children the characters of the parents are not oversimplified sketches. The drama of the adults, divided by the discrepancies in their characters, and the peculiarities of his professions - the father is employed at distant construction sites and is rarely at home - is also carefully examined. Instead of the usual criticism of the parents, who stand accused of the suffering and the loneliness of their children, the film offers a psychological analysis of the contradictions in the life of contemporary family, which have a painful impact on the lives of children.
