    • Synopsis
    • Storyline: Can adultery be the basis of a happy marriage? Charming epicurean Rudolf is absolutely convinced: "A woman needs to feel like she needs to fight for her man, she needs make an effort to keep him, and, most importantly, she mustn't ever get bored...!!!"
      Rudolf successfully applies this wild theory on an everyday basis with a surprising zing that's enviable for a sexagenarian gentleman. That's why he doesn't understand the naivety of his insufferably seemly son-in-law, who, because of his overtly responsible personality, doesn't realize that his wife Alice is starting to get bored, dangerously so. That's exactly why loving father and friendly father-in-law Rudolf offers Ondrej a few pieces of proven advice that should help him infuse some excitement into his moribund marriage, after all, the happiness of his only daughter's family is at stake..
      And so, the boring good guy Ondrej becomes a truly self-confident man and takes control, all thanks to his romance with the beautiful Sarlota, adored by his mistress and admired by his wife. While the situation is beautifully pleasant, it is ultimately unsustainable in the long run. After all, the ones who are truly in control are the women.
      Many a comedical situation await Ondrej, who faces them with the disarming combination of typically manly properties - playful ingenuity and the undying hope that everything ends well.
