Synopsis:

There are 5 800 blind persons living in Croatia today. Petar Bešlić is one of them. Not only that, he is the first Croatian blind athlete. Born blind in one eye, Petar lost the other eye in a terrible accident at the age of fourteen. Ten years later he is at the Paralympics in Bejing, running a 1500 m race, which symbolizes his own life race. Petar and his best friend Tomo, who is also blind, give us through their everyday life story a glimpse of their own world. We see them watching their favourite TV show, playing cards, we listen to what they expect from friendship. Thus we'll be given a very precious opportunity to see through their lost sight and share their doubts and hopes. They will guide us through the world of the blind but also through the place where our own fears of the different squat.
