    When Andrey was 12 years old he could easily hang on a basketball hoop. When he was 14 he could not fit into the photo. Now he is 22 years old and 207 cm height. Being tall is always a trouble. But being tall is not the main trouble of Andrey.

    MY THOUGHTS ARE SILENT is a story about immigration, as a state of mind. It’s about a young man, who grew up too quickly and his middleaged mother, who managed to stay young at heart. It is a story about the last journey to the places of your childhood, which do not become one’s true love, but love they can teach.
