Summary

Director's film is the third title in a loosely conected series of autobiographical stories – Late Night Talks with Mother (Noční hovory s matkou, 2000) a Landscape of My Heart (Krajina mého srdce, 2004). – It's nighttime in Prague, August 21st 1968 – Soviet troops and tanks are occupying the city – a struggle over the Czechoslovak Broadcasting, a chance passerby, random attacks, soldiers shooting, bodies lying dead on the sidewalk. With an impromtu film crew, the director (in the film is played by Karel Roden) captures some unique evidence, material which is, however, worthless in occupied Prague – it has to be shown to the rest of the world. So, while, for propaganda purposes, the Soviets are concocting false reports of heartfelt receptions and military resistence, the director sets off in a risky trip across the closed Czech-Austrian border to Vienna. He is accompanied on this journey by the Italian Enrico and his Czech lover Jana, the most beautiful girl in Prague. The Ferrari Dino Girl.
