A film lyric based on the famous Czech stage musical A Ballad for a Bandit. A group of burned-out intellectuals from Brno travel to the Ukrainian Kolochava to perform their famous play. Nearly everything seems to go wrong though. They arrive late, the Ukrainians expect something else, and supposedly reliable South Bohemian Philharmonic get lost somewhere in Transcarpathia. Brought to the Czech-Slovak cultural context by the writer Ivan Olbracht, this romanticizing story about the bandit Nikola Šuhaj, becomes poetry, alive here and now.
