_“An unexpected, multi-layered journey of eye-opening discovery… breathtaking to watch.” - Little White Lies

“A mesmerizing, and potentially transgressive, investigation into just how far the documentary form can be torn apart and put back together.” - Globe and Mail_

Desperate for answers about the theft of her 2 paintings, a Czech artist seeks out and befriends the career criminal who stole them. After inviting her thief to sit for a portrait, the two form an improbable relationship and an inextricable bond that will forever link these lonely souls.

“Astonishing… the cinematic equivalent of a cubist portrait, in which an artist and her unlikely muse are made to overlap, revealing unexpected dimensions of one another over time.” - Variety

Winner of the Sundance World Cinema Documentary Special Jury Award for Creative Storytelling
