Summary

This comedy and road movie tells the story of Michal, a medical student, and Zita, a model with a speech impediment who dreams of being an actress. Following a failed party, Michal and Zita make love. They have reasons to fear that she may have gotten pregnant, and so they set out to find a way of quickly ending the pregnancy.
