Synopsis

Elias (12) and his family are coming to the Czech Republic to settle down after years of a nomadic lifestyle. Instead of an idyllic return, they find their mother’s elderly father dying bitterly in his dirty flat. Mother collapses from exhaustion and father takes her to the hospital. The old man dies overnight and, when father returns, the police are already taking Elias and his brother away. The wild odyssey of the father, Elias, and his little brother, all three in female disguise, begins here. On their way, trying to get back to the hospital, they meet locals and become involved accidently in their dark life stories. Elias doesn't speak and copes with his overall cynicism through his imagination, but he slowly realizes that his father has lost his ideals long ago. In an effort to wake the sensitive man in his father, Elias defies him and by doing so gives him a new chance to win his son back and complete the journey to reunite the family.
