Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
This gentle parody of romantic melodramas centers on the romantic exploits of a portly middle-aged office clerk who marries a beautiful woman from another town. It took a lot of courage for the shy, awkward fellow to propose to her, and she accepted but insisted on remaining in Prague. She also tells him that a childhood trauma prevents her from having sex. Because the long-distance relationship is difficult for him, he asks his boss for a transfer, which the boss denies. Soon the clerk learns why: his boss and his wife are having a passionate affair! This news leads the poor fellow to contemplate his options: he could kill them, commit suicide, or he could blackmail his boss into a higher-paying job. He chooses the latter option.
