When love is the greatest torment, will art or play save you? A dramatic documentary about author Vaino Vahing.

In 1968–1984, Vaino Vahing kept a diary about real events and persons in his own subjective interpretation. It reflects the cultural life of Tartu, love affairs, bohemian parties and intellectual quests of the time. Vahing was interested in borderline situations, crossing the borders. He drew no clear line between art and life. Vahing provoked people, tried to make them lose their masks, their self-control. He called this provoking the Spiel, or play.

We are looking at a creator who has made disharmony his source of inspiration, who experiences “the greatest torment in love”. The red line in the diary of Vahing is sacrificing life for art. Is this possible at all or do we still have to try to love first?
