A sensitive portrait of Mirek Benda, a tried and true Sokol sport organisation member and an ordinary man with extraordinary vigour and ideals, revealing a story of human resilience and optimism through nostalgia and situational comedy. We’re drawn into the microcosm of the village of Křenovice near Austerlitz by two Japanese women who decide to visit Benda, thanks to his long friendship with a university professor from Tokyo. Together with Benda, we travel to the only Japanese gas station in Europe, to a ball in Paris, and to New York - to visit American Sokol members.
