With her film, Maja Weiss is trying to catch master Žnidaršič, one of the most successful and famous Slovenian photographers, in the time and space, when he was creating his photos; from travels with Marshal Tito to discovering the Lipica horses, Slovenian vineyards, hills or sea; from the wines and Planica to the war for the independence of Slovenia; the list of themes that caught the attention of Žnidaršič is extremely comprehensive.
