David is mentally disabled and used to life in the suffocating environment of his family. As he grows older he becomes increasingly aware of his disability and his lack of fulfillment. David decides to leave the security of his family and sets off on a journey to Prague. His at first innocent little trip in the capital city becomes a psychedelic ride full of strange decisions and unexpected situations, affected by his increasing sexuality. David’s later experiences balance on the very thin line between life and death. An atmospheric psychological film about the urge to discover new things despite being ‘different’.
