In cinema, people have a complete set, from love to a villa by the sea. But living in our country, it is difficult to count on a picture from American Hollywood. In life, we set ourselves the tasks that we want to achieve. We dream of professional realization, and for this we finish school, go to university, triple work and work on a career. In personal life we want the other half, love, family, children, grandchildren.
