The world of the young theatre director Petr in a small Czech town crumbles after he decides to realize his dream: to adapt an overly ambitious play based on Euripides’ classic Phaedra. Petr falls for young actress Karolína, who plays the lead. Shortly before the premiere both women leave him. Petr attempts to save his masterpiece, but the play is a fiasco.
