Dušan Kastelic was born in a small mining town in central Slovenia. Being a sickly kid he was unable to carry on the family tradition and get a decent job as a miner. So he became a teacher.

Mateja Staric was born in the great big capital Ljubljana. Being a dreamy child and with all the opportunities at hand, she was momentarily confused about what to become when she grows up: a painter, a singer, a writer, a pianist, a ballerina, an actress? She ended up doing music and sound effects for film and theater and she's super delighted about it.
You have probably heard of the phrase "To think outside of the box"? Well this is a  film about such a box and the flat-headed creatures that live inside of it. Life in the Box is boring and miserable. Until one day when a new baby boy starts to grown in the middle of the Box! This baby is very different from other flat-headed inhabitants of the Box. He's happy, lively and curious. As the baby grows bigger and bigger, the flat-headed neighbours are becoming more and more annoyed with him.
