Winner of four top Czech film prizes, FLOWER BUDS is a grimly comedic family drama set in a small, blue-collar town. Jarda finds his family on the brink of a breakdown with each member going in different directions. He’s more interested in gambling than his work. His daughter Agata plans to leave, knowing that neither the town nor her parents’ home can bring her the opportunities she yearns for; son Honza blindly follows his heart; and his wife Kamila, though still very much in love with him, really only finds solace in the companionship of old friends and nostalgia for the “budding” days of youth. But despite limited options, hope may just be around the corner.
