Builder who loves to destroy. Shy eccentric, bold alarmist, austere hedonist, and generous usurper. Inventor of life. He would never stop dismantling and demolishing until he got what he wanted. Walls and objects would cease to exist; a captured light would be all that was left. A life of a man who never gave in and was admired as well as beaten for it. Can one stick to one's precision and purity without liquidating oneself and his surroundings? Is it possible to live with a visionary? What is the price of living without compromise? Collage as a method, fragments of memories, searching for one’s identity, ich-form. A feature documentary about the life and death of a radical architect David Kopecky.
