Storyline

A young woman heavily injured in a car accident is dying in Strakonice's maternal hospital. Her new born son is given by three Fates a faithful girlfriend and a talent for singing as a compensation for his life without parents. After years Jirka Svanda (Karel Gott) makes his living as a decorator, he dates a loving Dorotka (Jitka Molavcová), but he sings only in the local wine bar U Dudáka. The Fates give him a worn out embroidered tail-coat for good luck. A photographer from a fashion magazine Kalenda (Jirí Sovák) invites Svanda who told him about his desire to sing professionally to Prague. Still before leaving Svanda substitutes a non-operating equipment and he sings for guests at a unique fivefold wedding which is covered by TV. Then he goes to Kalenda but first he is taken care of a by a cheater and a shark Vocílka (Josef Somr), who imposes himself on the naive Svanda as a manager. Written by NFA.cz
