In the late 1990s, in a large city, seven young people aged 23 to 33 attempt to practice something that used to be termed “love relationships”. In doing so, they clash, allowing themselves to drift in and out of long- and short-term attachments all of which only leads them back to loneliness. Robert is employed in a travel agency and enjoys unravelling and tangling people’s lives. He is instrumental in the separation of Hanka and Petr, the latter of whom, radio dj, is trying to grasp the meaning of life through live broadcasts of “true life” recordings. Hanka is also being pursued by Ondřej, until then a renowned physician and a good father. Then she meets Jakub, who achieves a positive approach to life with the help of marijuana, and while Jakub is certainly upbeat in nature, his habbit affects his short-term memory, introducing problems to their relationship. Disillusioned, Hanka seeks understanding with her parents, but all she finds at home are twenty Japanese watching “an ordinary family having ordinary supper”…
