Synopsis
This fragile love-story of two young people is set behind the walls of a communist prison of the 1950s. Sent to prison on a jumped up charge Luboš cannot tame his love for jazz and his rebellious spirit, which he carries deep inside his soul. In prison, he meets a young prisoner named Dana. He falls in love with her at first sight. It is not a real meeting, it is more an encounter of sights, tiny and sparkling, from which grow the tender feelings of love. Out of solidarity and the support of co-prisoners, a small uprising takes place to help complete the love, which came at the wrong moment to the wrong place.

Synopsis
In this bitter comedy about a lonely man in middle age the main character of the seemingly ordinary story is a fool and a freak. He lives in an apartment on the ground floor on one of Prague’s streets, where the rattling trams and the city hustle are far away. Few people walk down this street, and few cars drive through here. And despite all that, this man experiences unbelievable adventures every day. His window is either wide open, or he stands before the window on the pavement, smoking one cigarette after another, he piles up ever-scattered dustbins and he regularly checks their contents. He likes to chat with people, but hardly anyone wants to chat...
