Storyline

Sasha Korolev has a congenital disorder. The boy's father has chosen what seemed to him the only correct way to put the son on his feet: to treat him like a healthy person. "You're not a patient, you have temporary difficulties". Eating, getting dressed, going downstairs and walking up the front door steps - every day the child spends hours on such simple household tasks. At school he is mocked by his peers, and there is no help to expect. The boy has coped with the illness, but started hating the father. When he finished school, Sasha left home and stopped all contact with the father. Over the past 15 years he has become the best business consultant in the country, who has helped hundreds of businesses out of crisis. "You have no a crisis, you have temporary difficulties", - Sasha would say to his clients, having gone along a difficult path himself. And one day, a new order unexpectedly gives him the opportunity to settle accounts with the father.

He said that the movie is a work of fiction and has nothing to do with his life. The only truth was that he had problems in school due to his handicap. he advised all people not to take this movie as an example on how to handle this disease. On press conferences the filmmakers reminded people when being asked critical questions that this movie is based on a true story. See more »

Amazing
24 January 2019 | by darinkadol-27111See all my reviews

It was difficult for me to watch the first half without crying, many times. But it's a really great movie, with amazing actors and a very interesting story. Based on an amazing real person, that really did go through so much, it's just amazing.
