Shy, closeted teacher Petr leaves Prague hoping to find a new life by taking a job at a small school in the country. Despite the conservative community, Petr is soon accepted, especially by widow Marie who offers Petr a room at her farm. She believes her romantic overtures are rejected because she is older than Petr but little does she suspect that Petr has developed a crush on Marie's straight, 17-year-old son Lada. Problems occur when Petr's boorish ex-boyfriend makes a surprise appearance. Czech with subtitles.
