Vitus is a boy who almost seems to be from another planet: he has hearing like a bat, he
plays piano like a virtuoso and studies encyclopaedias at the age of five. It is no wonder
his parents begin to anticipate a brilliant future for him. They want Vitus to become a
pianist. However, the child prodigy prefers to play in his eccentric grandfather’s
workshop. He dreams of flying and of a normal childhood. Ultimately, with one dramatic leap, Vitus takes control of his own life.
