Seven Characters In Search Of A Relationship
Robert, a Japanese tour group organizer, helps his friend Hanka break up with Petr, a radio dj trying to capture “real life”. Petr finds a subject in Vesna, a Macedonian in Prague because it’s the best place for UFOs to land. Hanka finds herself chased by a respectable brain surgeon, Ondrej, whose wife, Lenka, a co-worker of Robert’s, deludes herself about their happy family. Through Ondrej, Hanka meets Jacob, a great guy but his short-term memory is shot from too much pot smoking so he always forgets he already has a girlfriend. Hanka retreats home, only to find her parents having dinner in front of a Japanese tour group.
