V filmu ne najdemo besede humanizem, izžareva pa ves čas pomoč človeku in človeštvu. Opaža se, da nekateri čutijo dilemo, da bi opustili ekstremno medicino in pustili naravi, da naredi svoje, drugi pa občudujejo Avgustinovo moč, požrtvovalnost in vztrajnost. Tako humanitarnost ni samo parola, ampak jo globoko občutimo. Film vliva upanje v človeštvo.
