Synopsis:

Czechoslovakia, 1982. The totalitarian regime seems invincible. Antonín, a member of the secret police, is full of unfocused rage and everything around him - his work and family life - wears him down and bores him. He becomes fixated on Klára, a girl he has no hope of winning. Antonín's senseless struggle to have Klára for himself not only turns him against the enemies of the regime but also against his own people and system itself.
