Tony, a young trombone player in a brass band, leads a humdrum life. He plays the same music over and over every night. But this night will turn out to be special. While playing his solo, a tipsy female dancer collapses on the dance floor. Tony ends up taking her home. After he drops her on the sofa in her shabby living room he needs a drink. He doesn’t pay attention to the weird mold stains on the walls, or to the large crooked bookcase stuffed with hundreds of books with the same title. All he cares for is to find a corkscrew and open the bottle of wine standing on the table. Once he does his life turns upside down. When the night is over he is forced to commit the ultimate act of courage.

About the film
For over a year I was collecting 35mm short ends in Europe and the US, because we couldn’t afford to buy new film stock. Although my stock was two years expired, for me shooting on film was essential. Most of the short ends we purchased for a very low price came from Ridley Scott’s production of Child 44 that was shot in Prague some years before. Other short ends were given to me in the US. That meant whoever from my family and friends traveled to NY had to carry an extra suitcase, pick up cans with old film and bring them back to Prague, where the movie was shot.
