1944. In a small train station in Bohemia, this story relates the sexual awakening of a young, simple-minded man, Miloš, who, through his awkwardness, turns into one of the heroes of the Czech resistance. A tender, burlesque, unclassifiable film with multiple ways of reading and tremendously endearing characters.
