    Really loved the film. Thank you for sharing it. Have few questions: What have you heard of family domains? Do you know what is bio-vegetation is? Do you have neighbors? Do kids have friends to play with and please share more about dome, what it’s made of and the purpose. Thank you in advance!
    Kind regards,
