VISITING ARTIST—Mikuláš is a neurosurgeon in Prague facing problems with drinking and his love life. His estranged brother Richard, an ex-soldier from the Afghanistan front line, lives in a small town and takes care of his two daughters. Each of them has something the other doesn’t, and their destinies intertwine to form the mutual milestones in their lives. Although the brothers’ social lifestyles differ, they do have one thing in common—a longing for love.

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.
