    • Synopsis
    • David is a mentally handicapped young man who is used to live in the suffocating environment of his family. As he grows older he becomes increasingly aware of his disability and the lack of fulfilment. David decides to leave the security of his family and sets off on a journey to Prague. His at first innocent little trip becomes in the capital city a psychedelic ride full of strange decisions and unexpected situations, also affected by his growing sexuality. David’s later experiences balance on a very thin line between life and death.
