Viktor Tauš's debut came out of the filmmaker's own experience with drug addiction. The film convincingly retells the story of a Prague Film Academy student (whom Tauš himself plays under his own name) who becomes heavily hooked and then attempts to make it back to normal life. Viktor's uncritical adulation of the cult of violent movies forms a significant subplot, though his admiration is gradually destroyed through conflict with the world of actual violence.
