    • Synopsis
    • This film reflects the hectic period of the Prague Spring and the Soviet invasion that followed in the summer of 1968.Three young people, orphans Yorick, Andrej and Marta, are in a cynical and hopeless world of violence and disillusionment. They survive thanks only to their own foolishness - trying to play at freedom in a country that is not free, using an inner philosophy of joy and love. They live, play, love, hate…and die.
