    • Synopsis
    • Remarkable performances led by Simona Babčáková in a down-to-earth comedy about six thirty-somethings taking stock of their lives. All of them are long-time friends who have moved to Prague from the small town of Jablonec nad Nisou. After a reunion at a party in their hometown one thing is clear to them – they know what they don’t want in their lives but at the same time they have not found out yet what they would like. While the first character is fiercely trying to get pregnant, the second one drinks a little more than ‘socially’ acceptable, and the third one realizes that she’s been living in marriage with a harmless bully. The trio of young men is not better off – one of them has been studying at university for nine years and his girlfriend is cheating on him with her ex, the other one is waiting for the opportunity to tell his mother that he is gay and the third one does not hesitate to talk about his troubles with his shrink. Now it’s time for an old idea – community life at the farmhouse that all of them once used to dream about. Is this new attempt for happiness going to work out?
