Storyline

A contemporary comedy continuing the highly popular Czech film franchise of the 1980s. After the death of his mother, Stepán (Pavel Kríz) tries to decide what to do with his life. He gets a new job, as a doctor riding with an ambulance service, but his personal life is falling apart. Then his best friend, Kendy (David Matásek), asks to move in after his wife kicks him out. The two men take this reversal of fortunes with good humor, and at first bachelorhood even has a certain appeal. But when Stepán meets Anna (Michaela Badinková) his life transforms. He is even given a shot at an administrative position at the local hospital, but is sitting behind a desk what he really wants. Perhaps the key to his happiness lies elsewhere.
