The story of Mateusz, a man suffering from cerebral palsy. As a child, he had been diagnosed to be a retard with no contact with the outside world. 25 years later, it turned out that he was a perfectly normal and intelligent person. Thanks to his will to live and optimistic outlook, he was able to overcome his limitations.
Life Feels Good is based on a true story.
