To escape his nagging father, 16-year-old Marek (Miroslav Caslavka) flees his small-town life for the teeming streets of Prague. But the city offers no warm welcome, and Marek instead finds himself immersed in the bizarre world of male hustlers. He soon meets the street-savvy David (David Svec, who also cowrote the film), and the two forge a flesh-peddling business -- the first step in a downward spiral that ultimately leads to tragedy for Marek.
