Music video "Starting point" tells how the coronavirus epidemic began in 2020. It was a sudden blow to all of humanity. It was like thunder and lightning in clear weather. At first, it was difficult to believe in the possibility of such a tragedy. But thanks to the efforts of doctors and rescuers, the epidemic was brought under control.

After that, the world became different and we will learn this lesson for many years to come.
