Is There Any Place for Me, Please?

(Moje nová tvář)

When 25-year-old Martina’s ex-partner douses her with acid, her world falls apart. She loses her sight, and her face and upper half of her body are badly burned. Step by step she learns to live with blindness and reclaims her life.

For weeks after the violent attack, Martina is fighting for her life. More stays in hospital, several operations and painful treatments follow. Martina, who always found physical beauty important, revises her priorities. She builds a new life and, in large part, a new identity. She deeply changes her relationships both with herself and with the people around her. She begins to find fulfilment in activities that help others, leading to a change in her vocational focus. Professional footage alternates with footage shot by Martina. Together they present the image of a brave woman for whom a tragic experience becomes an opportunity for emancipation.
