Synopsis by Mark Deming

A man from the city takes his son out into the great outdoors and finds more than just fresh air in a comedy from Czech writer and director Tomas Vorel. Honza (Tomas Hanak) is a computer programmer with a young son (Michal Vorel). Honza decides that he and the boy need to get away from it all for a while, so he takes his son on a trip to the country; however, neither can bear to part with their computers for a few days, so they end up bringing along a battery of high-tech equipment. While camping, Honza meets Marketa (Barboura Nimcova), a former city dweller seeking solace in the country with her ill-tempered grandmother (Ljuba Skorepova) who has a habit of stealing people's watches. Honza is quite taken with Marketa, and tries to romance her when he gets away from his son; Marketa's grandmother, however, doesn't quite trust Honza or his gadgets, and doesn't mind telling him to his face. Boleslav Polivka's performance as a cranky local earned him a best supporting actor nomination at the 2001 Czech Film and Television Academy Awards.
