Synopsis

A film about the very last authentic comedians in Central Europe – Slovakia, Hungary,
the Czech Republic, and Germany placed in wider social, cultural, and national contexts.
These are four stories of a strange kind of free-spirited people who gave up the comfort
and warmth of a stable home out of love for the art of comedy and as a result of
a strong bond to family tradition. This is a film about emotions, love, and true values.
