Walder,Werber produced the film series on behalf of Noveos, the leading provider of social psychiatric services in the canton of Zurich. All the actors and actresses actually work or live at Noveos and tell their own personal stories. In this way, Noveos wants to actively promote the destigmatization of mental impairments and break taboo subjects, according to a press release. In addition to the six films with the personal stories, the institution's services are also explained in an overall film using animations.

In the region of Zurich Oberland and the right bank of Lake Zurich, Noveos runs several enterprises, from the Brockenhaus with two branches to the modern carpenter's workshop with 1000m2 of machinery.
