Quotes

Bishop Boris Kharalampiev: Everyone is entitled to his own faith. No one should violate the intimate, spiritual life of another. That's how I think now, that's how I have thought in the past, and if I live any longer, that's how I'll think then.

The Film shows something what I have been missing in the last years: The human side of the human beings. Not only homo sapiens but also homo homos. If you want to find out some other dimensions of being human worth while, then watch this film. It will give you food for thoughts. Above all food for what we forget often: to be human beings.
