    • Synopsis
    • Flower Buds tells the story of the gradual breakdown of a family living in a small town. Each character lives
      according to his or her own ideals. Agata wants a happy life far from home, fully aware that her only hope is to escape and therefore betray those close to her. Honza believes in the purity and power of love,
      regardless of the circumstances under which it is born. Kamila looks confidently to the future and has no intention of accepting the misery of the present. Only Jarda knows that he will not change the world or
      himself. Aware of his weakness, he does not even try. In his mind, of course, his addiction to slot
      machines, which has led to a nearly impossible situation, is as certain as most gamblers’ belief of an
      imminent win. The real and convincing attempt to rescue his family comes when it is too late. It is just a
      futile gesture, a desperate last ditch effort.
