A Little Piece of Heaven tells a story of love, friendship, and solidarity, aspects of life that allows us to live with dignity even at the most difficult of times. Set within the walls of a Communist prison of the 1950s, a tale unfolds of a young couples‘ fragile love. Despite the period setting, A Little Piece of Heavenisn’t political propaganda. First and foremost it is a romance which shows that love will find a way even under the most dramatic of circumstances. An angry young man, Lubos always felt defiance toward everything around him, and eventually this trait lands him in court. The verdict is clear and the punishment long and hard. But even in prison Lubos is unable to tame his love of jazz or the eternally blazing flame of rebellion he carries inside. There is no place on earth where love cannot grow. Lubos meets Dana in prison. It’s not a real meeting, more of an encounter of looks, a flying of sparks which leads to feelings of love. Out of solidarity and support, their fellow prisoners hatch a small rebellion to help them fulfil their love – a love which has appeared in the wrong place at the wrong time.
