A melancholy portrait of a fan of auto tuning, who – when not behind the wheel of his home-tuned but slowly decaying car – stumbles aimlessly through life. An exploration of the main protagonist’s barren landscape of relationships and of the barrenness of northern Bohemia, where the story takes place. Both these “vacuums” are filled at least temporarily by the roar of engines – heavenly music for Ráďa. Despite an extreme observational format, the filmmaker works with a language full of metaphors that encourage reflection even when the viewer least expects it: in a parking lot in the middle of a loud tuning meet.

“I never sleep in the tent. If you sleep in the tent at tuning meets, they’ll knock it down in the morning. When I was in this one club, they knocked down my tent and stuffed potatoes up my tailpipe. That really pissed me off.”
