The alien and the human being always can understand each other if there will be a good will.

The film has no dialogue in any language. All communication is made using music, gestures and gazes; the alien also tries to communicate by shapeshifting. Director Vladimir Tarasov explored this theme of universal communication in his other films; he considered animation “the Esperanto of all mankind”.
