Ian, a spatial orientation instructor, arrives at a world-renowned Lisbon clinic for the visually impaired to work with blind patients. It is his task to help them become more confident and allow them to explore their surroundings without feeling vulnerable or afraid – and without a white cane. The clinic’s international community greets his unorthodox methods with both anticipation and skepticism.

For Ian, orientation flows from the mind and imagination – then sensory perception follows. He quickly wins the trust of his patients: a small group of children and young adults of various nationalities. His techniques intrigue them and embolden them to explore their surroundings. He even motivates the reclusive Eva to engage on a social, possibly romantic level. But are his techniques as safe as he claims? Director Andrzej Jaimowski’s finds imaginative ways to put the audience in a blind person’s shoes in this engrossing and original drama.
