Storyline

In the land of King Dobromil (Josef Somr) honest labor, decency, honesty and respect among people has become a thing of the past. Instead the country is gradually succumbing to Hell's force and, thus, those who have some remnants of decency prefer to flee. Slightly befuddled herbalist Apollonia (Iva Janzurová) has a dream that the land is rescued by an unknown 'saviour' who arrives with on an ass and marries Annie (Tatiana Pauhofová), the king's daughter. But who will believe this mad herbalist with her 'magical' herbs that often cause more chaos than benefit? When things are at their worst in the country, the king signs his soul away to Hell and the Government is taken over by his base Minister (Jirí Lábus). At this time there arrives in the Kingdom an inconspicuous happy dreamer Philip (Stepán Kubista). Written by Czech film center
