    • A tragi-comedy about the end of WWII and the roll call of the communist regime. With this background
      you have a part-dream sequence story of the two main characters coming back from the
      war - comedian Pepe and front line soldier Prengel that become best friends after discovering gold
      together. By coincidence these two meet Ester who is coming back from a concentration camp and now
      love enters the story with this melancholic Jewish girl. Three homeless people are trying to fulfill their
      idea of happiness. They chose the wrong time period. The monstrosity of the 1950’s is represented by
      a fanatic young communist, Želmíra, who turns their world upside-down.
