Misha is 16 years old and he is ill from birth. His disease appeared because of a genetic blemish and was acquired by inheritance. All his life he is observed at the Russian clinical hospital for children. He comes from the city of Vladimir to spend in hospital 1 or 3 month at a time, sometimes – a whole year. When he gets better, he returns home.
Misha Kurochkin is an amateur, but a very talented animated cartoon artist. Painter Fedor Lunjakov comes to tutor Misha. He says: «Misha is very feeble because of his illness, many simple actions are very difficult for him. What a healthy person wouldn’t even notice, for him may be an unsolvable problem. Misha wants to devote himself to animation. But he doesn’t complain. He is very exacting and exerts himself at lessons. I’m astonished by his work capacity and concentration. He is vague what he wants. We have seen a lot of world classic animation, and the degree to which Misha is attentive to what he has seen and how he wants to compete with high examples of animation, means that he takes it most seriously».
We want to help Misha very much - he is a very kind and clever boy.
And an animator should work in a studio, but not in a ward, being attached to a dropper for 12 hours in a row.
