The documentary explores the life and work of painter Jaime Fernandes, who began designing and painting in the final years of his psychiatric ward. His work, after his death, received great recognition from European critics. In the words of Reis: “I can also say that I tried to make a film in a humble way, that is: at least, a way to save, through print and recording, the drawings that he left us with, which I consider to be genius. I’d be happy if the film was considered just as a pure work of film archaeology, since most of his work has disappeared”.

António Reis & Margarida Martins Cordeiro:
António Reis (1927) began as a member of the Experimental Section of the Porto Film Club and worked as an assistant director on Manoel de Oliveira's The Rite of Spring (1962).

In 1977, he became schoolmaster at the Film School in the National Conservatory and died in Lisbon in 1991. His life and film partner, Margarida Martins Cordeiro (1938) was a psychiatrist by profession.
