Another Life tells the story of sixty-year-old Alex, who lives a spiritual hermit-life at the spectacular cliffs of the Irish coast. He shares his home with dozens of injured animals that he selfessly nurses back to health until they´re ready to return to the wild. The loving care for these animals is rooted in his strong conviction that all life in the world is equal. Even the tiniest fly that he spots on his window.

Jan Prazak, born in 1991, grew up in Vienna. He won the „Verdrängen, Vergessen, Verzeihen“ literature prize.
