Josef, an Attempt at a Portrait of a Man

Josef is an ordinary bus driver in Brno and, at the same time, an extraordinary man. He lives with a deadly disease, autistic children and faith in man. Josef is a hero one would never notice on the street.

A veristic portrait of a man recorded over two days spent on the bus with Josef on his route from one terminal to the other. From one terminal to the other through Josef’s life and the lives of us all. Genre-wise, the programme is on the boundary between a radio documentary and a radio play.
