One hot summer, young Tomáš Sinek plans to take off to England to “pick strawberries”. It seems that his family – father, mother and grandmother – has no other worries than packing their descendant off on the trip, even if not everyone is happy about it. But the situation is not that simple. We are in Czechoslovakia and it is 1968. Tomáš, his friends and Táňa spend a lively night before his departure. In the morning, however, come his father’s suspicious telephone calls, his mother’s stocking up on staples and his grandmother’s tears. Tomáš rushes to the train station but Prague’s streets are empty and the trains have stopped running. Tomáš doesn’t deem the situation serious, so a day’s delay doesn’t bother him too much. But this August morning was one that radically changed the lives of thousands. It is August 21, 1968, and in a few moments the lives of Tomáš, his family and friends will be derailed, too.
