Wiktor Grodecki's blunt social feature draws on his television documentaries Body without Soul and Angels Aren't Angels. It takes up the topic of male child prostitution in present day Prague. The power of the film lies in strong work with nonactors, often real prostitutes, and a corresponding pictorial conception, especially with regard to camerawork and editing.
