This series is about residents of the orphanage for people with physical or mental disabilities in Smila,Ukraine.They are completely isolated from society and most of them never left the orphanage.Nobody speaks publicly about this problem.These people thrown out of society. They need our help, and first of all – changes in attitude towards them. These people are not dangerous, they are admirable and deserve to live not in reservation, but among us.I want to show their personality, dissimilarity, uniqueness and incredible beauty,but most of all - how they suffer from loneliness and isolation.
