The director Jan Svěrák made a portrait of his father Zdeněk. In documentary that so cĺosely joints images and storytelling, where history often transforms into a lagend, the insight into both the privat and artistic life of Svěrák senior is intercut by shots of his film roles.

Czech subtitles are available for download only in DVD format.
