Summary It's 1947, a time of sensuality, extravagance, humour and endless expectation. Ivan Heinz, a good-looking fop and witty agitator, is just 19 years old. While putting together his first collection of poetry, Ivan rushes headlong into a destructive romance with the exquisite and bisexual Jana. The new communist regime demands absolute obedience. The clash comes. After a few weeks of starvation, with absolutely no money and with police repressions, Ivan and Jana plan their escape to Paris. But Ivan has to scrape up at least some money for their escape. He accepts an offer to smuggle penicillin over the Czech-Austrian borders. The borders are unexpectedly sealed. Yet Ivan always has some crazy plan up his sleeve. The screenplay for this electrifying film was inspired by the youthful memoirs of Egon Bondy, one of the most important figures of the Czechoslovak literary scene. In Czech
