This is a story about Lithuanian photographer Artūras Morozovas and the lonely people he meets, often for others even non-existent, socially excluded people.Photographer Artūras Morozovas is one of the few representatives of Lithuanian humanist photography. Without seeking sophisticated forms or concepts, he touches sensitive, human pain. Spending days in Syrian refugee camps in Greece, documenting the war in the Caucasus, Palestine and Ukraine, slowly communicating with people and taking pictures on film, the photographer slowly opened up to life in the dehumanized world of war.In 2023, he is starting to create a humanistic photography project "I met a man", during which he travels around the villages and towns of Lithuania and captures people who are in social isolation. His journey and photography is not just an artistic project. It is the friendship of different people and a way to understand a person and the world. The plot of the film reveals 3 stories of the people photographed by Artūras.
