In Russia, about 60,000 children suffer burns each year, with 25,000 requiring hospitalization. A severe burn is a complex injury that leads to significant changes in the lives of children and their families. Treatment of burns involves severe pain and prolonged hospitalizations. Those who have suffered severe burns develop scarring that changes their appearance and can restrict mobility. The medical rehabilitation required to deal with it is a long-term process, and repeated operations are often necessary. Psychologists and social workers help young burn victims and their family members to adapt to the treatment process and hospital life, and coordinate care with their doctors. Lyosha and Vika were seriously injured in a fire as young children. After numerous operations and a lengthy socialization process, they are now fully grown and trying to find their place in the world. Lyosha is studying to become an IT specialist and Vika wants to become a Cynologist.
