Every year on the day of the Twelfth-Night (06/01) skiers compete in the country’s biggest open cross country race. It’s called The Twelfth-Night Fifty (50 km), the competition takes place in the Giant mountains of Bohemia. Pavka Bulan, a legendary amateur racer, happens to also own a mountain ski lodge. Pavka, finishes this year’s race in a good time; however, his son Jura, doesn’t even finish the race. As opposed to the bracing cold of cross country skiing, Jura prefers the seductive warmth of women much older than himself. Pavka is focusing too much on Jura completing the race and doesn’t give enough time looking at the possibility of heaving another son. One he’s never met. Hilsky, someone who's skiing for something much bigger than victory, maybe has found the chance to finally meet, after many years, the father he’s never known…
