Two sexy girls in Communist Czechoslovakia decide that patriarchal society is spoiled and decide to become spoiled themselves, just to see what it's like. This involves going out for fancy dinners with old men in comfortable positions and taking them for the proverbial ride of which the geezers want to literally take the girls. Eventually the girls encounter authentic communist workers who are too busy to be interested in pursuing them. The girls subsequently decide that they are tired of being spoiled, but by then it's too late. The Stalinist authorities are tired of them taking food from their plates, and they condemn the girls, just as the Czech state in fact ostricized the film and its female autuer.
