An absurd tragicomedy based on the successful theater play by René Levínský, which was nominated for the Alfréd Radok Prize for the best contemporary production. Set against a backdrop of the fading genius loci of their particular world, the main characters work out or, rather, try to work out their entangled relationships. Switchman Franta Bláha ‘shoots’ himself at his own bachelor party: he and co-worker Gábina Kleinová, a cleaning woman for the railways, were planning on getting married. But that evening something else happens: Franta’s identical twin brother dies. The brother was financially much better off than Franta. And he wasn’t about to get married. Can Franta resist a sudden drunken impulse to switch identities with his deceased brother? Thus begins another summer day at a medium-sized Czech train station…
