My heroine chooses the first path, but it is he who immediately throws up to her a number of obstacles, overcoming which, she becomes a Personality and Creator. It is important for me to tell everyone who is at the beginning of their journey that it is definitely worth going where it is scary. "

Stasya Venkova: "The new film will be new in every sense. It's not that I'm in an eternal race for new forms, but the picture will definitely give a new breath, a new generation of artists, a new look at a new world. In my work, I strive for honest feelings, insane beauty and sincere feelings. These are, in fact, the main components of our film. "

Anton Rogachev, actor, performer of the role of Denis: " Participation in the project gives me the opportunity to tell about our acting life. The viewer, who often does not know what is happening behind the scenes, will see how young actors work and live, because in life we ​​are not the same as on stage and in the frame. Stasya chose the acting ensemble for sure. It seems to me that the stars are so formed that everyone plays themselves, we are very similar to our characters, there is almost no distance. Rosa Khairullina, who plays in the film of our master, is another accurate hit in the script! I am grateful for the opportunity to be in the frame with her. "

Dasha Balabanova, actress, performer of the role of Liza: "Nowadays few projects are being shot specifically about young people. The heroes of the film are students of a theater university, with their own ambitions, expectations, demands, strengths and weaknesses. Veta wants to leave her mark on art, and when she faces a choice: love or creativity, the decision will not be easy. And which one - the viewer will know when he watches the film. "
