Synopsis

A disturbed teenager leaves his family and runs away alone to the big city - Prague. A mentally handicapped young man decides to leave the security of his family, and goes to Prague in order to search for the purpose of his existence; whether it is freedom, sexual experience or death. Director Jan Tesitel: "Although based upon my brother and family my focus was never on the diagnoses of the character of David. To be fair I purposely distanced myself from labelling the mental illness because I didn't want the audience to have any sort of prejudices and expectations. What I wanted was them to get to know the character of David through the situations he encounters rather than the medical terms." World premiered at Karlovy-Vary.
