The plot of the work may look simple and fun. Behind the simplicity is hidden what many people expect for on different sides of borders, what they are looking forward to and what is theirs priceless.

It is enough to imagine how, after a long and anxious waiting, you meet a loved one whom you have not seen for a long time. You hug in your own place, at home. Place where you really want to return, but now you can’t and don’t know when this day will finally come. You were separated or were forced to leave your hometown. Someone’s house and even a whole city turned into ruins, but you have still wanted to return there at least for a moment and feel the warmth of familiar hands, look into the eyes of a loved one.
