Film shots featuring the beauties of Prague are underscored by passages of songs celebrating the city. A man with a camera is disturbed by an unknown man who makes him set off with him onto the streets of Prague. Numerous places which are not open to tourists bear notices warning pedestrians of falling plaster and dug-up pavements. The ash cans overflow with trash and yet more rubbish is thrown directly on the pavements by the disorderly pedestrians. On many Prague streets, wrecks of immobile cars are abandoned. The quality of life in the city does not benefit either from noise and air pollution from car exhausts and chimneys. Many neon signs shine only in part. The camera man and the unknown man stumble across the city and the lyrics of songs about Prague sharply contrast with the view of its dark side. The two men arrive at the airport and the unknown man puts on the armband of a tour guide. He picks up guests from abroad to show them the beauties of Prague...
Vidím město veliké...
I Can Foresee a Big City...
