In this tragicomic story, the world of children – friendships, the first great discoveries, romance, fights between enemy bands, and great expectations – meets the reality of the world of grown-ups. The story talks about the son of a Communist official, a little hostage of his parents, who immigrated to the West in the 1960s, only a few years before the beginning of the Prague Spring and the occupation of Czechoslovakia by the troops of the Warsaw Pact.
