Film won the grand prix at the 40th edition of the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival. Krzysztof Krauze was also awarded the prize for Best Director and the 85-years-old Krystyna Feldman was awarded the prize for the Best Actress, for her role as Nikifor.

Based on a true story, Nikifor was a gifted naïve artist  who was homeless for most of his life. Accepted into fellow and well established artist Marian Włosiński's studio, he stays for nearly seven years as his fascinating past is explored, much to the detriment of his family.

The film tells about artist's spirituality and his personal freedom which allow him to create works of the best quality. 

A fascinating biopic directed by one of the most talented contemporary Polish directors, Krzysztof Krauze.
