David is a young man of twenty with a mental handicap. The problem is that he is aware of his disability and thus the family environment becomes more and more frustrating for him as the years go by. So one night he decides to leave his family and takes the night train from Ústí nad Labem to Prague, leaving behind his mobile phone, with all the data erased, and his parents, who think that he is asleep. David's trip quickly turns into a kind of psychedelic pilgrimage, full of strange decisions and unexpected situations. The story is told in two parallel lines. The first focuses on David and on his search for the limits of his own existence. The second line deals with the parents, who are looking for David and trying to deal with the issue of the upbringing and responsibilities towards a handicapped child.
