Daniel, a 25-year-old literature student, has had to come to terms with his identity. He is a homosexual paedophile and an active member of an online Czech community who choose not to act on their sexual impulses. Unable to fulfil his desires and determined to take responsibility for keeping his urges under control, he is faced with the option of being satisfied with fantasies and suppressing his sexuality medically. With unprecedented access, Daniel speaks frankly and openly about his life and his struggle to exist in mainstream society. Director Veronika Lišková creates a space for self-reflection and confession while handling the issue with sensitivity, humanity and surprising lightness.

Screening followed by Q&A with director Veronika Lišková.
