Archbishop Anton Vovk lived his vocation with strong faith and devotion, conscious of his mission in the then challenging, epochal times. The documentary traces his life and work, portraying the man he truly was: brave, con dent, and at the same time gentle and caring. Using a modern language of cinema combined with original score and unique footage, the film helps the gure of Anton Vovk enter common knowledge and collective memory.

Very early on, David Sipoš (1989) substituted schooling for work and learning by doing, making a series of short films, first in self-production and later with the help of investors. In recent years, Sipoš has made a series of biographical documentaries portraying central gures from the history of the Slovenian Catholic church, such as Janez Frančišek Gnidovec, Dr Jožef Smej, Anton Vovk.
