Csuk Roland, a ten year old little boy was born in Budapest. Until he was four years-old he spent more time in hospital than at home because he could not breathe the city air, which made him asthmatic, so on the advice of his doctor his parents took him to live in the countryside.They found their new home among the scattered farms of Tápióbicske 59 kilometres away from Budapest. The distance is, in a way, still great, which is manifested in the circumstances. The child has been healthy ever since, he goes to school, he has animals, he has a proper diet, and he even has a surrogate "grandmother". The film takes a peek into their lives and shows that things are far from being perfect...
The film is about focal dystonia - a disease that primarily strikes professional musicians. This disease ruins the lives of tens of thousands of musicians, in part because the patients are afraid to talk about it, and because doctors often misdiagnose it. The film originated in a screenplay by classical guitarist Sándor Mester (known as MS3), who suffered from this disease for more than a decade. Depression, alcoholism, suicide - this is the path often followed by musicians with focal dystonia... The film interviews musicians from eight different countries who either suffer from dystonia or have recovered.
