The main character of the documentary film "Bunarman (Wellman)", Antun Gabajcek - Nuno, is one of the last practitioners of an old and dying profession. When requested, he digs water wells, but without the use of machinery. He exclusively uses tools that require hard physical labor. He is not working in this manner because he is capricious or stubbornly insists on tradition. He simply does it because there is no other way to do the job properly. In this film, the well man is fortifies the sides of a well with bricks to help the water flow and enhance its quality. Major physical effort is required to achieve that, as well as sophisticated methodology, an original strategy and many hand-made tools. This is precisely why Gabajcek is a good character for a documentary. This documentary search for the answers to the question how can such a troublesome way to earn a living produce such a unique and wonderful person.
