Summary

Author's debut of the cinematographer Richard Řeřicha captures in the story of eighteen-year-old boys and their band the start of punk in former Czechoslovakia.

Miki, one of the protagonists of the story, remembers those times and his youth. In the film these archival materials were used: Portrait of the Square (dir.
