Unable to tell the story of the ever-changing society of South Africa, a documentary director has to re-discover how to see and hires a blind Danish actor (Rune T. Kidde) as his alter-ego in an attempt to do so. Mixing documentary - the making of the movie itself - and fiction, the film tells the story of a blind man who enjoyed paragliding until he was forced to stop by the loss of his sight some 10 years ago. After years spent trying to get acquainted with his new condition, the man feels now the need to fly again. Unable to do that in his native country because of his handicap, he travels to South Africa. Here he pays a local maid (Bonnie Mbuli) to be "his eyes". But the growing intimacy between the two generates dissent within the black community where she belongs.
