This delicate mosaic of four stories about heroes blind from birth opens up the rich world that these people have created for themselves. The main protagonist of the first tale is music teacher Peter who, apart from perfect pitch, is also endowed with a remarkable imagination eloquently illustrated in the film via playful special effects. The love story between the blind Roma Miro and the weak-sighted white Monika, whose parents arent keen on the match, almost assumes the dimensions of a Classical drama. In the next story, we see Elena and Laco, whose love for one another gradually evolves into a parental bond as the pair wait anxiously for the birth of their child. The heroine of the last story is 14-year-old Zuzka, who hopes that the boy she has found on the Internet is The One.
