Made up entirely of individuals with handicaps, the Czech band “The Tap Tap“ has gained a fair amount of fame over its long history. Radovan Síbrt’s documentary film places the focus not on the band members’ diagnoses, but instead shows them as complex individuals. By choosing this approach from the start, Síbrt manages to do justice to the group’s special spirit and their message of equality.
