Konstantin Khabenskiy about his Charity Foundation and the movie:
«People always need help — a targeted assistance for some children or rehabilitation assistance or suppot for some medical centers or support for the members of the family of a sick child. If they have the reliable information about the Foundation activities they trust the Foundation. The Foundation can’t afford to hide in the shadow, you can’t be modest in Charity activities. I try not to emphasize my own activities to show the work of the whole team but of course I also take part in it. The movie is not the epic story and not passage in time when the heroes existed and the great country existed as well. The Age of Pioneers is the time of the people ready to risk and to go forward. It’s the time of ours as well.»
