Director Dagmar Smrzova's new documentary looks into the every-day life of an ordinary man who suffers from schizophrenia. Thirty-year-old Jiri Laska (his last name means 'love'), who lives in a village under the mountains, Batnovice near Trutnov, is not your usual apathetic patient in the psychiatry ward. Using modern technology, he communicates with his surroundings and runs his own website, for which he films unusual journalistic videos. Jiri also has an extraordinary gift for self-reflection and his life is characterized by helpfulness and his desire to be useful and productive.
