Synopsis by Mark Deming
One man's attempt to end an unhappy marriage takes an unexpected twist in this Czech drama. Martina (Ivana Chylkova) is a prominent politician whose marriage to Karel (Ivan Trojan) is falling apart. Karel wants a divorce, but Martina is reluctant to give him one, since she's afraid it would have an adverse effect on her career. Determined to force the issue, Karel persuades his good friend Ota (Jan Kraus) to seduce Martina, which would give him grounds to insist upon a separation. Ota, however, gets more than he bargained for when he finds himself falling in love with Martina.
