The film follows the footsteps of German writer Marc Fischer, who obsessively searched for the last musical legend of our time, the founding father of Bossa Nova, Brazilian musician João Gilberto. Fischer described his journey in a book, Hobalala, but committed suicide one week before it was published. Following his steps, the film searches for João Gilberto to understand the history and the very soul of Bossa Nova. But who can tell whether he will be found or not since João has not appeared in public for decades?

The Serbian-Australian writer B. Wongar (Sreten Božić) fled his native Yugoslavia in the 1950s, worked with Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir in Paris, and ended up in Australia in 1960. He still lives there, on his bush property in Gippsland, south of Melbourne, together with his six dingoes. The Serbian filmmaker Andrijana Stojković follows Wongar in his chaotic home, dominated by old newspapers, black-and-white photos of Aboriginals and an ancient typewriter.

A documentary filmed in 1998. on Yves Saint-Laurent and the legendary fashion designer's final show Au delà de la haine, before the top-tier fashion brand sold to Gucci the following year. It was the end of an era, as Saint Laurent was already the last of the great French designers to operate his own house.
The film was originally presented at the Panorama section of the 57th Berlin International Film Festival in 2007. Pierre Bergé, co-founder of the Yves Saint-Laurent couture house, banned the public release of the documentary film during his living.
