An intimate portrait of a director whoalmost involuntarily devoted her life tofilm, and who was willing to sacrificethree marriages and motherhood tothe cult filmmaking. The film portraysDrahomíra Vihanová as a hard-headedshaman of images who shares herreligion from its early days of beingdamned by the regime for Zabitáneděle (Squandered Sunday, 1969) tothe public execution of Zprávao putování studentů Petra a Jakuba(The Pilgrimage of Students Peter andJacob, 2002). An existential essaythat, in contradictions and paradoxes,fluctuates between documentary andacted film, between adoration,forgetting, and cats.
