Hrvoje Novosel is the instructor in cathechism and biodynamical farm producer. He is the follower of Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925), the Austrian philosopher, author of antrophozophy, Waldorfian school system and biodynamical agriculture based on traditional human knowledge and cosmical natural processes. Hrvoje’s relationship to Steiner is in conflict with the Catholic church which puts the strains in his daily work in school teaching of cathechism. This is why he has been relieved from teaching in 6 schools in a short period, each time the new teaching post (school) being more distant in time and travelling from his home. The documentary also reveals what is the relationship between his main character and duke Mishkin –the idiot from the novel of Fiodor Michailovich Dostojevsky.
