Radim Špaček's psychological bit of autobiography is an experimental project unique in Czech cinematography. Strongly dreamlike stylization benefiting from a 1980's amateur esthetic goes beyond the films of the nineties. A young man named Poppy isn't able to get on socially or even have a relationship with his girlfriend Akja. After a stay in a psychiatric hospital he commits suicide and the film becomes a postmortem statement rigorously unfolding the story, scene by scene, from end to beginning.
