Petr Pýcha (screenplay)
Two mischievous adolescent boys, Hedus and Mara embark on a journey of imaginative misadventures in the Audi Mara hardwired. Mara is questioned by the police regarding the theft just after Hedus has left the car. The questioning is the excuse for the flashbacks that tell the story up to this point.
The boys pick up a hitchhiker girl. She leaves the car after being fed up with the boys, though they do save her from another boy. The boys save Mara’s grandfather from a heart attack and have several other misadventures during this road trip that are supposed to show their coming-of-age while entertaining the audience with a few laughs.
Apart from a few scenes of pretty wintry Slovakian landscapes, Omerzu’s examination of youth is nothing out of the ordinary.
