This is a film about a mentally disabled village simpleton, who is always ready to be of assistance to anyone who needs it, fixing things around the house or doing other manual jobs. In his humorous encounters with people – some friendly, others openly hostile – Oto frequently finds himself in situations that accentuate the fact that he is different, all the while patiently putting aside the pittance he gets from his “clients”.

With Oto, I wanted as realistically as possible to depict the misery of a person with a mild mental disability. Although each village in the country has one, we fail to realise the struggle it takes for someone like this, living on the margins of society, to make it through the day.
