brief info:

Young intermedia artist arrives to the spa town of Luhačovice for artistic residence. At the end of the residency, he have to create any piece of art. Trying his best, he is still unable to create anything. He is distracted by the family memories, by his own incompetence or by accidental encounters with annoying backpacker. These encounters cause the chain of unexpected events and feelings, which helps the artists to overcome his crisis. The problem is – Everything appears as quickly as it disappears.

The film was created like the verse libre, without the stone script, without the money, with the crew of four people and with only four shooting days. With the emphasis on duration, the specific shooting method used the improvisation of cast but also the crew.

The film is in post-production.
