The film combine actor feature action, animation and crash dummie. Department of animated film, FAMU - 4th year.

Josef F., a young cartoon filmmaker, living in the world of cinema and theatre is a social case – he is slightly mentally handicapped. Josef is in frequent contact with the environment of film and theatre celebrities. At the same time, he lives a rather lonely and chaotic life with his curator, in a house without running water. The contrast between the glittering world of the celebrities and the colorless, slow-paced existence of the social cases, creates the framework of the film. The director intends to explore if and how these two worlds can be interconnected, whether they have anything in common, and to search in each of them something, that would be really surprising for us.
