The film takes place over the course of one afternoon and night in a village near Prague. We follow the story of Jan Ouřada - a 20-year-old well-read intellectual, a little shy but with a lively imagination. His biggest problem is the fact that he is still a virgin. Among other things, he uses his rich fantasy when trying to impress girls; unfortunately he is always unsuccessful. After the last unsuccessful attempt, he decides to commit suicide. He is saved by his more experienced brother Bolek, who decides to help him by inventing a story about a girl who likes him. This starts off a night that could change his life.
