"Life Feels Good" is a film based on a true story. The story of Mateusz, a man who has cerebral palsy, who in his early childhood had been diagnosed as mentally disabled and had no contact with the outside world. Twenty five years on he has become a fully-functional, intelligent person. The film is a chronicle of his life. We get to know Mateusz now, when he is 30 and staying in a clinic for mentally disabled persons. He is about to be examined by the board which has to judge whether he is normal or not. During the retrospect we track his life from childhood in the early 80s, to the present time and accompany him in the ups and downs. We witness his attempts to prove that he is a person able to live independently. We also meet the love of his life - Anka - and his emotions for her. We are with him when they send him to the clinic for the mentally disabled. After several years, when he is already 26, it turns out that the man who was once considered to be mentally disabled due to a twist of fate has become a person who lives and breathes life just like everyone else.

Basé sur une histoire vraie, Life Feels Good raconte l’histoire de Mateusz, diagnostiqué dans son enfance comme mentalement attardé et qui n’a pas de contact avec le monde extérieur. Ce n’est qu’après vingt-cinq ans que la verité est reconnue : en dépit de son important handicap physique, Mateusz est très intelligent et affectif. Nous suivons son parcours depuis son enfance dans les années 80 jusqu’à l’âge de 30 ans, en partageant avec lui des moments difficiles et joyeux. A présent, cet homme de 30 ans va être examiné par une commission qui doit statuer sur son état mental.
