In noul sau film Miroslav Janek descopera viata in casa de copii prin intermediul unui joc. Copii contribuie la realizarea filmului, invata sa lucreze cu camera video si sunt lasati sa filmeze mediul in care traiesc. Regizorul ii insoteste prin fel de fel de experiente si experimente; copiii nu se limiteaza doar la simpla inregistrare a realitatii ci creeaza animatii, insceneaza situatii, se joaca cu camera video dar in acelasi timp realizeaza un documentar al copilariei lor. Camera video in mana copiilor darama zidul dintre doua lumi.

ENGLISH VERSION

Miroslav  accompanies them on their jorney of experiences and experiments. They learn to film, to create animations and to stage situations. They play with different media and their game turnes into a documentary on their childhood and life.
