Daniel, 25 years old, studies at the Academy of Literature and writes books. His stories are about a man who loves little boys. Then his friends asked him: ‘are you the paedophile you’re writing about?’ Daniel stayed silent for a while and then he said: ‘Yes, that's me.’ And there it was...
Daniel was the only member of the Czech paedophile community who decided to come out publicly. He felt it was another necessary step on his way to overcoming his fear. His fear of his surroundings, of his fantasies, of himself. Daniel was gradually learning how to talk to people about it. And some of them have learnt to listen. Still, he knows he will have to face hidden resentment from the society. But that all seems better to him than hiding from himself for the rest of his life.
Can a paedophile lead a happy life? That is what Daniel asks himself every single day. He does not know what will eventually prevail in his life. Will it be joy or sorrow? Every day is a small battle against himself. Daniel is patiently gathering his little victories and little defeats, hoping that despite it all he will not lose the possibility of being close to children.

Est-ce qu’un pédophile peut mener une vie heureuse ? C’est la question que Daniel, 25 ans, se pose tous les jours. Il ne sait pas ce que l’avenir lui réserve. Y aura-t-il plus de joies que de tristesses ? Chaque jour est une petite bataille contre lui-même. Il est écrivain et ses histoires parlent d’un homme qui aime les petits garçons. Un jour, quand ses amis lui demandent s’il s’agit de lui, il répond par l’affirmative. Il décide d’en parler publiquement pour dépasser ses peurs, celles de son milieu, de ses fantasmes et de lui-même.
