film, which makes the look at ourselves. The film, which appeals to the memory of our not pious and arrogant acts which we have caused at one time or another to each other.

We have with those who raised us, but then we move on gradually developing, but the most important thing is not killing something that we have laid in early childhood. Love for his neighbor.
