Synopsis
7 or Why I exist. What a question! And who could possibly provide the answer?
This film chooses an unusual path and invites 7 children from all over the world to take us by the hand and lead us into their world. They show us what is important to them, what they love and what they hold dear, what makes them laugh and what makes them cry.
What does it mean to be a child today? How does it feel to focus your gaze on the world and on the future. What do children see before they forget how to ask questions that no-one can answer?
This is a film about childhood and the world of children; it is authentic, told with sincerity and the power of imagination, with subtlety and humour. Stories from children, for children - and, of course, for grown-ups.
It is a film about a world that often remains closed to adults. A perspective on the world which can be like a mirror or like a trip back into our own childhood: watching children think.
