Inspired by the incredible true story about a young man Just (24), who lost both of his legs in childhood accident and who is in love with the girl next door - Ieva (23).
The story begins when Just meets Ieva on the doorstep of the house they both live in. They start a flirty conversation that is interrupted by two thieves, who rob Ieva in front of Just.
In the blink of an eye Just decides to follow the thieves to retrieve Ieva's bag and conquer her heart!
This was the hardest movie or project I have ever made. 4 month of rehearsals with main actor Aleksandrs Ronis, who never acted or did anything related to film. We found him playing sitting volleyball game and from the first encounter I knew there is something magical about him.
Just 2 years ago he was a street boy, homeless and in a gang, now he started to fix his life and he told me stories that inspired to create this film. Story that is not about disabled person (I hate this word - disabled), or person without legs, but a story of person who never stops in front of obstacles, a story of a person who fights for his dreams, story that anyone can relate to.
We are stronger then we think! There are no limits to what we can do and accomplish!
This film took us 10 month to make, but it created so much happiness. For our main actor it was becoming an actor and telling his story to the world, for me it was opportunity to tell a story that touches my heart and which I believe will touch other people hearts for our team it was realization of how much we can do if we believe in our dreams!
