Mystery and romance and political commentary are combined in this drama set in post-Communist Prague. When Orf sees the young and beautiful Sarka whistling and singing upon the rooftops he falls immediately in love. But just as their romance heats up, Orf leaves her to become heir to a large and rare collection of erotic art. The art was hidden from the Nazis and the Red Army for many years and was protected by an aging major domo. Suddenly the guardian is murdered and the paintings are stolen. Orf sets off to find the treasures, gets framed for murder by others desiring the paintings, escapes with the assistance of two musicians, regains and smuggles his paintings back to Prague, and renews his relationship with Sarka.
