The rebellious fourteen-year-old Mára sets out behind the wheel of a stolen Audi with his eccentric friend Heduš. Together they head out into the frozen wastelands of the Czech Republic in search of adventure. When the police finally catch up with them, the mischievous breeziness of Mára’s story provides more questions than answers for the baffled authorities. Filled with directorial playfulness, Olmo Omerzu’s winter road movie about boyhood friendship and unexpected adolescent detours was the winner of four Czech Lion Awards.
