    • Synopsis
    • The sixteen-year old Anna wears impossible clothes, off-putting lipstick, provincial hairdo and she's hitchhiking on a country road. Twenty-year old Speedy is wrapped around a steering wheel of an orange, East-German hot rod and feeling no pain. He sees her and stomps on the brakes. Anna asks him: "Goin' to Prague, sir?" She's running away from home and all she knows about Prague are a few vague geographical facts she recalls from her classes in the military school, where she should be sitting and taking notes even right at this moment. But she trades her military education for the life in the big city. She gets to drink her first cappuccino. She eyeballs the habitues of a Bohemian cafe as if she'd only seen people like this in a movie before. Toward dawn, Speedy's brother Filip takes her to an apartment where she finds a very odd household. There's Speedy who can't stop himself from grinning and there's the handsome, though a little enigmatic, Filip; there's the sleepy Irma who's just going through a bout of seasonal depression and there's the very strange Kytka, who spends his nights cruising who knows where. And then too there's Kosmos, a beast with the dimensions of a horse, though it's supposed to be a dog. The rhythms of this loose household are very relaxed. At night, no one goes to bed until the wee hours; in the morning, no one gets up to go to work; at all times, the smell of reefer wafts through the rooms. In short, it's a kick-ass place to live, though not for too long...
