Anatomy of a Czech Afternoon

Czech republic, 2020, 22 Min

The dog days of summer between hedonism and ignorance. A mother searches for her children in a crowded lido. The seriousness of the situation soon becomes clear. Yet while some begin to grasp the unimaginable, others continue to lounge around in the shade. They enjoy the summer breeze. Comedy turns into tragedy, or is it a laughing matter after all?
