Native New Yorker Frank has reacquired his noble family’s ancient Bohemian seat – Kostka Castle, which he has not visited in 40 years. He gets ready to make a glorious homecoming with his daughter, Maria, and his wife, Vivien. But the newly minted aristocrats have no knowledge of local customs or the ins-and-outs of the 1990s Czech Republic, and all they know of castle life comes from their relatives’ age-old yarns. The family arrives with their lawyer, Benda, only to discover that Kostka is in a state of gradual decline and cut off from the world around it. Its only permanent inhabitants are a backward caretaker, Josef, a jovial housekeeper, Mrs. Tichá, and the hypochondriac maintenance man Lebeau.
