Daniel's World / Danielův svět

Documentary: Fight for Your Life

“My name is Daniel and I'm twenty-five. I'm studying literature and trying to become a writer. Although I've never had a girlfriend or a boyfriend, I know what love is. I'm in love with a little boy. The only thing I want in life is to be allowed to be his friend, to be nice to him, and sometimes be close to him...” This is how Daniel introduces his existence as a pedophile. The film's attempt to break one of the last sexuality-related taboos is surprisingly, not just an insight into the world of sexual predators, child pornography and the abuse of children, but a sensitive recording of Daniel's experiment on how to live a “happy life” as a pedophile. This paradox requires a degree of self-control from Daniel, which is unimaginable for most people, and is rewarded by a dubious chance to spend a few moments with his love, six-year-old Míša. A daring documentary by Veronika Lišková and Zdeněk Holý, Danielův svět Daniel's World tells the story of a platonic love in which fulfillment would mean more than just moral failure for everybody.
