Bára has returned to the Czech Republic to get to know the country of her parents, Czech immigrants to Canada. Honza is a singer and guitarist who has always wanted to move to New York and become someone like Bob Dylan. The film follows their journey to freedom, full of daydreaming, and set against the backdrop of woods, bonfires, and open skies. One hundred years after the first camps were founded in the Bohemian woods, Bára and Honza set out to hike to the original locations, staging their own escape into an imaginary America, an escape inspired by the Czechoslovak tramping subculture, an outdoors movement imitating an idealized Wild West. With each new encounter or experience, their journey transforms into a universal story of friendship, music, and dreams of freedom. Amerika is the feature debut of director Jan Foukal.
