A young girl takes a hard task. She must try to save her brothers and get rid of the curse placed on them by their mother. It is a story of courage, perseverance, but also of the power of words, truth and true love.
Tomas (12) gets a camera and begins making a film about his family. His enigmatic father (Ondrej Vetchý) works from home. By hiding a camera in his office, Tomas discovers that on Tuesdays and Thursdays his father leaves the house. When confronted with that fact, he denies it. On the pursuit of the great family secret Tomas reveals the hidden side of Haris, his best friend, who starts using a camera as the only way to get his mum and brother away from the hell of his violent father. Courage and profound friendship lead Tomas and Haris to the final revelation and an unpredictable conclusion. The whole film is shot and edited as if by a twelve-year-old boy. This technique allows us to perceive the world through the eyes of a child.Written by

At first I was unsure as to whether it was a doc or fictional film. Are the characters 'real' or actors?
As it progresses, the viewer becomes increasingly absorbed in the direction of events and in the sacrifices involved in maintaining the enduring friendship between the 2 main protagonists Tomas and Haris.
The film made me wish I'd taken my film-making hobby to a greater level! Two special memories: firstly, the football coach selecting his own kin above unrelated boys who have greater talent!; secondly, the moments when Tomas looks directly into the camera (giving us a wordless message) is never over-played (the film would undoubtedly be denigrated if that were the case) - great direction!
