On Christmas Day, teacher Dušička discovers a horse in his second-floor apartment. He doesn’t remember how it got there, he doesn’t know how to get rid of it. However, thanks to the presence of the circus shimmy, he discovers the true face of the people he lives with, as they lose their masks in the highly unusual situation. He becomes aware of the pressures he has to withstand in his personal and professional life, he understands that his environment forces him to make compromises that are contrary to himself. He gets into conflict with his girlfriend who wants to own him, he encounters problems at school where he is being forced to change the way he teaches, he struggles with his neighbours who impose their bourgeois principles on him. Thanks to the bizarre situation, he realises that he is being manipulated by his surroundings and gradually strays from the path he set out on in his youth. The Horse is a film about inner freedom, its various forms and its limits.
