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 Fedra. He loses his two main actors during rehearsals and the municipality threatens to cut funding due to the play’s political content. Petr falls for young actress Karolína, who plays the lead. Tensions at his home grow; he is not much of a present husband and a father. Shortly before the premiere both women leave him. His wife has had enough and Karolína simply disappears. Petr attempts to save his masterpiece, but the play is a fiasco. Devastated, he tries to regain last pieces left of his life. But isn´t it far too late?
