Vratislav Brabenec, a poet, musician, and gardener is the centre stage of a baroque western, an all embracing documentary film depicting a play while the play becomes a documentary: there are no limits to the human creativity, and thus it is possible for speculations about plans for a garden and misty poeticism about the train of love to stand at the same level with a theatre performance, which makes the film a blend of sensuality and metaphysical anxiety, thirst for life and the demonia of death and doom.
