"Yes Day". A movie about a family with three children, with the eldest daughter being a teenager. Mom plays the role of a "bad cop" and often says "no." The father is a tough boss at work, but at home he can't say no to his children. During the crisis, the family agreed on a "yes day," in which the parents completely follow the children's wishes. According to Roiz, the film shows how the whole family explores the boundaries of freedom and responsibility, play and rules.

"13 Going On 30". The story of a teenage girl who feels like a failure at 13 and wakes up in the body of a 30-year-old. Roiz shares that the movie is a bit naive. However, according to her, it has something that can be important for children who want to become adults faster. And for adults who have forgotten how to be children.

"17 Again". A movie where a man who was disappointed with his life, who had brilliant athletic abilities in his youth and planned a sports career, gives up everything because his girlfriend says she is pregnant. Now he is bored at work, does not feel close to his wife, who is planning to divorce him, and his children, who are growing apart. But after a strange encounter, he returns to his 17 years when he made important decisions. Roiz notes that the film contains conversations about sex, as well as an important monologue about respecting a girl's decision and consent to an intimate relationship.

"Groundhog Day". A story about a man who has the same day repeated every day. At first, when he realizes this, he spends it doing whatever he wants, because he doesn't feel any consequences. However, he quickly gets bored with this story, so after unsuccessful attempts to commit suicide, the protagonist decides to do good deeds that only he remembers the next day. In the end, the time loop is broken.

The cartoon "Brave". The film follows the behavior of a teenage girl who decides to disobey her family's rules and brings trouble to everyone. She uses magic to bewitch her mother. In order to break the spell, she has to find a common language with a wild bear, into which she turns.

"The cartoons are about the relationship between a mother and a teenage daughter, growing up, finding one's role and strength, resistance and aggression, adult control and guardianship, and reconciliation and respect. It's also about the power of the family," said Roiz.
