A chance encounter brings Honza, an uninvited guest, to the fairytale wedding of Radim and Tereza. Radim’s former schoolmate, Honza insinuates himself into their circle of family and friends. An unusual wedding gift and his attempts to draw attention to Radim’s past cause tension between the newlyweds, building up a sinister atmosphere overshadowing the wedding. A beautifully performed, intimate psychological drama about buried secrets and the possibility of forgiveness by Jan (the Oscar-nominated Divided We Fall) Hřebejk.
