Childhood has never been a story that has a beginning or an end, so this film is also a mix of emotions and experiences that are sometimes difficult to dig out. Can we be nostalgic for something that never ended?

“Pastel colours, motifs characteristic of childhood and excellent image and sound editing help us emerge from the world of grownups and remember, with nostalgia, that we were all children once, that in each of us there still hides a child.”
