An autobiographic film by a legendary Czech New Wave director Jan Němec based on his pseudo-biography is the story of John Jahn, a filmmaker always crossing the line of good behaviour. In the fatal year of 1968 Czechs had three films in the main competition of the Cannes film festival and a good chance to win. But a would-be revolution of French filmmakers headed by Jean-Luc Godard put a stop to that year´s festival and ruined the Czech party. For John Jahn it meant going back home just in time to see his homeland invaded by Russian tanks. A complicated journey to exile follows and finally the famous return after the velvet revolution.
