What sense does life have once you have lost your entire family? How to give life a direction at times that are turned upside down? How to believe in learning when the best brains of your times only use their knowledge to devise new means of killing? Amidst the hell of the Thirty Years´ War Johannes Amos Comenius wrote an original philosophical piece filled with distinctive imagination. Against the backdrop of personal tragedies and within the maelstrom of history we see open the world of spectacular allegories and parables about the search for the paradise of heart in the labyrinth of the world. The production is a collage of fragments of the philosophical piece by one of Europe´s greatest thinkers, of fantasy images from his books and historical drama of his times. It is inspired by Comenius, a name familiar to every learned person in Europe, whose contribution to our geographical space remains irrefutable.
