Adolf Loos was a revolutionary going beyond the habitual order in his profession as well as society. The documentary follows the development of his artistic manuscript from Pilsen to Prague and Vienna to Paris. Using previously unpublished archival material and personal stories from his entourage, the film illustrates the complicated nature and work of this genius who profoundly influenced the development of modern European architecture.
