A tragicomic story of three siblings whose lives changed dramatically after losing their parents during the Communist regime. The oldest, Cyril (Miroslav Donutil), grew up to be a corrupt judge who lives for luxury and takes whatever he wants without remorse. His younger sister, the idealistic Aneta (Vanda Hybnerová), is an investigative journalist writing about political scandals. Thanks to her work, for which she sacrifices everything, her personal life falls apart. The middle sibling, Bruno (Miroslav Vladyka), has held on to a childish view of the world as he has avoided real life. Each one is totally different, yet they all try to stick together. That is, until they learn that Bruno is terminally ill and has very little time left. Cyril decides to redeem himself by organizing a week-long luxury trip to the High Tatras. As a gift to Bruno, he also brings along a young stripper named Tali (Tatiana Pauhofová). Written by
