A few years ago the filmmakers came in contact with Miroslav Miklashtrvscky (Spanish name: Martínez) who shared tales of his life, from his days as first violin in the Belarus Philharmonic Orchestra to handyman. Before going to work each morning, Miroslav would always go for a peculiar little spin. When we asked him why, this is what he said: “Asking why only serves to cut the wings off of dreams in flight.” The filmmakers always dreamed of making a documentary about Miroslav but weren’t able to find him again.
