Summary

This steamy comedy is inspired by real stories of the director's friends and acquaintances. At their father's funeral, attended by his countless lovers, sisters Anna and Jana learn of the existence of their half-brother, Vladimír, a painter who abandoned his wife and deaf-and-dumb daughter. The younger of the sibblings Anna awaits her first love and hates her mother's young lover. Jana tries to keep her marriage afloat with the philandering Jan, who cheats on her with her friend Karin. The stories of the various protagonists culminate in a final solution.
