Synopsis

In this film a Slovak director seeks present concept of how her countrymen understand their nationality. She is worried that the Slovak national sentiment is fragile and easily politically exploitable. Her heroes often define themelves as contrary to the outstanding Czech personalities of Czechoslovak history and they seek national roots in common "pre-nationalistic" history of Great Moravia. Although many of the stories are grotesque, the rapid development of united Europe shows that the search for one´s own identity is a fragile thing, not only in Slovakia.
