Czechoslovakia, 1982. The totalitarian regime seems invincible. Antonín, a member of the secret police, an uneasy, perhaps psychopathic person, becomes bored with everything around - his work, his family life, etc. He becomes fixated on Klára, a young woman he has no chance of winning. It is not love, not passion but a burning desire to escape from the clutches of boredom. Antonín's senseless struggle to have Klára for himself not only turns him against the enemies of the regime, but also against his own people and the system itself. When Antonín breaks the rules of the organization he serves, it is neither a civic nor a political gesture, but rather a purely personal and desperate act of rebellion.
