A reckless boy in an almost desperate and therefore troublesome way persistently seeks the attention of his father, a photographer. Being confronted with his father’s artistic chaos and his obsessive fascination for photography-life, on his way of growing up these elements eventually become essential for strengthening of their father-son bond. In a story that interwines hand-drawn and stop animation in the collage technique, the author takes his audience on a ride through the archive of the Slovenian photographer Dragiša Modrinjak, and at the same time draws from personal experience as a filmmaker and father.
