Czech Republic/Slovakia | 2012 | 98min | DCP | COLOR | Drama
The main plot takes place in Prague in the year 1983, amidst the Communist-imposed normalization, a suffocating atmosphere ruled over by the secret police. The story is about an 18-year-old's revolt against authority, against social norms; it is about the search for one's own values. The main protagonists' way out of the everyday dullness is to provoke through the punk band they have formed. As the band members' ideas and opinions become increasingly extreme, they come into conflict with the established social rules and people's apathy, but above all with each other.
