For four years, the orthodox priest Libor Halík has been singing psalms aloud outside the maternity hospital in Brno. This is his everyday protest against abortions. The documentary features a man who is convinced that Czech people prefer laziness to hard-working Christian love, that abortion is murder, homosexuality is perversion, and atheism is a deadly sin. His prayer guard outside the "abortion factory" meets with opposition, but he still goes on holding the cross and saying: You can never be a prophet in your own house and land. The film was awarded at IDFF Jihlava 07 as the best Audience film.
