Summary

A humorous, sometimes ironic, slightly cynical, but also touching film about various forms of love. The main character, eighteen-year old blind girl Maruška Kalátová, looks for her first real, big love. But not only Maruška seeks. People in her surroundings also look for love. In the film some extracts from the film Closely Watched Trains (dir. Jiří Menzel, 1966) and Black Tears (dir. Jiří Cieslar, 2002, TV film) were used.
