Paul, the protagonist of Martin Krejčí’s eagerly anticipated feature debut, is growing up with his father. Making friends is practically impossible because he looks drastically different from his peers: he has the condition known as congenital hypertrichosis, meaning that he suffers from an abnormal amount of hair growth all over his face and body. On his thirteenth birthday, Paul decides to seek out his mother in order to get answers to unasked questions.


Synopsis

Paul is a loner who exchanges a mere few words with his father every now and then. His mother left them long ago, long enough for the silent kid to remember her only through a cloud of illusions. Making friends is practically impossible because he looks drastically different from his peers: he has the condition known as congenital hypertrichosis, meaning that he suffers from an abnormal amount of hair growth all over his face and body. On his thirteenth birthday, Paul decides to take his unenviable fate into his own hands and seek out his mother in order to get answers to unasked questions. In his masterfully directed feature debut – an archetypal search for identity despite the odds – Martin Krejčí skillfully combines a solid grounding in contemporary reality with the otherness of a world reminiscent of myth and legend.
