The Hanuliaks, a couple from Slovakia, have decided to bring up their son according to Kamevéda, a complex approach to developing the child’s motor abilities and intellect. Unique in its depth of focus, this reflection on child-rearing documents a year in the life of four-year-old Miško, where not a minute is wasted since there is no room for boredom and moments of rest are merely preparation for the next achievement.
Childhood is an immensely valuable period in one’s life, but how to give it true meaning? The Hanuliaks, a couple from Slovakia, have decided to bring up their child according to Kamevéda, a complex approach to developing the child’s motor abilities and intellect. They have subordinated everything to their 4-year-old son Miško, in the hope that he will one day become both a top athlete and a perfect individual. Since his birth, his parents have blurred the difference between training and play, as even ordinary breakfast conversation becomes a mental exercise. Unique in its depth of focus, this reflection on child-rearing, shot with a light directorial touch, documents a year in Miško's life, where not a minute is wasted since there is no room for boredom and moments of rest are merely preparation for the next achievement.
