Czechoslovakia, 1989: for 9-year-old Jachim, there is nothing greater than the TV series "Knight Rider", which he can receive clandestinely on an Austrian signal. Together with his little brother, he re-enacts the most daring stunts from the series and wreaks a lot of havoc in their high-rise neighborhood. Surprisingly, Jachym's father has little understanding for his passion for Michael Knight. But when the demonstrations begin in the fall of 1989, Jachym and Michael Knight hatch a plan to prove themselves to everyone.
Czech filmmakers are taking part at Asiana International Short Film Festival (AISFF) regularly starting already with its first issue in 2003, followed by 2005, 2007 and 2008.
