The central theme of the project is the exploration of different ways of perceiving and understanding the world, which takes place in the relationship between adults and children. In various ways, the artist confronts adults with a child's view of the world and observes what happens in this - how they react to it, struggle with it, try to empathize with it, etc. Within this framework, he also focuses on more general issues, such as the relationship between different levels of reality, crossing the boundaries between reality, fiction and the imaginary, researching interactions and communications in a certain space and time, etc. Neža approaches these questions with the help of film language, where he experiments with transitions between documented and acted elements, expression and articulation, amateur and professional subject performativity, etc., as well as by exploring the possibilities offered by animation.
