SYNOPSIS

Jaroslav is a handsome and seemingly good-natured son, father and decent husband. But in fact, he is pathologically jealous of his wife Blanka and very much afraid that she will leave him one day with their three children. Jaroslav and his family do not hesitate to employ violence, deceit and terror against others, which ultimately leads to a family tragedy.

DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT

It is the tale of a day in the life of Jaroslav K. (43) – a family drama, depicting a conniving and violent tormentor, sexual and domestic abuse with an unexpected end. This film was inspired by almost two years of research in both male and female prisons. Using experience gained, I approached my third film in a more daring way, going deep into my soul using what I call the “analogue method” a language of metaphors and my imagination based on solid research in the real world. I have rewritten my research into the language of an imaginary parallel world, thus creating a tiny layer on top of reality that helps the audience see through unconscious connections, instead of through the logic of social norms.

Although many are reluctant to accept that such abuse exists on their home ground, certainly in Central Europe, it is sadly a phenomenon without borders. I believe that my absurdist drama rendered in non-traditional form of game will present a novel perspective on intimacy, sexuality, and violence, and in particular on domestic violence in modern society.
