A black comedy with a touch of detective genre begins with Michal and Adam, two childhood friends coming back to their hometown of Šumperk after 20 years. Michal’s mother’s dead body was mysterious pulled from lake Krásno several years before. Now, Michal’s father dies on the day they return. Without knowing the truth about the weird events, all that is left is anger and sadness. The father’s new wife (now a widow) behaves suspiciously, which encourages Michal and Adam to investigate. The pair embark on a tangled journey to solve a mystery, unaware that disaster awaits.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
