"The toponym of the Black Sea is revealed at sunset. The Black Sea waters release all their blackness appearing as an enormous amount of oil, immersing all habitants of the sea into the darkness. Children's emotions, spontaneous and non-predictable, look especially contrasting against this background revealing the difference between the children's innocence and wild power hidden in the waters of the Black Sea."
