Kacper Bielik (Andrzej Chyra) is a history teacher in a high school in Lublin. He loves his job, gets on great with his students, only sometimes feels a little lonely. New year brings him new opportunities: he becomes a class teacher, befriends Klara (Eliza Rycembel) a difficult student, starts a relationship with Ewa (Urszula Grabowska), also a teacher. Unexpectedly he starts losing his sight. Will he be able to hide this and live his life to the fullest? A film by Jacek Lusiński, based on a true story of a blind teacher, was awarded a Grand Prix at Shanghai International Film Festival. Andrzej Chyra’s role deserves a particular recognition and so does the humanistic message that this film carries, which makes us believe the world could be a better place.
