Synopsis

Kateřina is an introverted girl who cannot make friends with the other girls her age in a holiday camp. She runs away to the forest and sunbathes alone. One day, she is spotted here by the head of the camp. The head likes the girl and tries to have a love affair with her. Kateřina successfully defends herself. Then she wanders around the forest and, towards the evening, runs into two hikers named Pepa and Andy. She has dinner with them by the camp fire and gets drunk with them as well. After the night bath, the boys try to seduce the girl, but she rejects both of them. At the day-break, she however eventually lets Pepa into the tent. When Andy wakes up, he grasps the situation and is sad and jealous. In the morning, they set off to the camp and pass through the landscape and an abandoned village. In a courtyard of an empty house, they find a hen, catch it, and Pepa kills the animal despite the protests of both Kateřina and Andy. After the incident, Kateřina looks at Pepa with contempt. He feels offended and leaves. There is only Kateřina and Andy left on the way to the camp and both young people become close. They say farewell to each other before the camp gate; Kateřina returns alone, to face reproach and troubles.
