Synopsis / Plot
1961, a group of students from the Film Faculty of Academy of Performing Arts shoot their graduate film about a motorcycle factory. Another one is a personal drama of an Albanian student Leke, who comes from a country completely isolated from the rest of Europe. He is torn between a feeling of solidarity with his country and with his family, especially his mother, and between his enchantment with the lifestyle, erotic exuberance and lightheartedness of the Czech "golden youth." The protagonist's passionate love for a woman in mature years, the wife of a police superintendent (Anna Geislerová), forms another principal level of the story.
