A documentary that invites us to take a tour around the planet along with prestigious Catalan sculptor Jaume Plensa to discover how art can transform the way we are in the world, the way we see it, and live it. In times of noise, confrontation and smear campaigns, Plensa’s reflections with the camera have a contaminating shooting effect, full of poetry, beauty and a much-needed sense of peace.
A profound sense of love, and a love for the public space and the people who inhabit it. In a journey around the world with the artist himself through his emblematic installations in public spaces in Spain, France, Sweden, USA, Canada and Japan, we discover his simple philosophy based on the search for harmonious relationships between the work, the environment and human beings.
