The film, an adaptation of a bestselling novel by author Michal Viewegh, is a comedy aboutfriendship, fateful loves, beauty and ugliness, alcohol, and the search for human happiness. In several time lines, the film tells the story of school-friends going through various stages of life together. We find ourselves at a class reunion. This ostensibly banal situation opens the way to both sentimental memories and, above all, a balancing up of lives led to date, with their unfulfilled desires and realized dreams. The plot revolves around three friends – Jeff, Skippy and Tom – whose ups and downs and relationship breakups keep bringing them back to a shared bachelor apartment. Their counterparts in the story are two women – the class beauty Eva, who becomes the object of desire of all three guys in turn, and the ugly Hujerova, whose ironic attitude to herself and life in general gives her the ability to survive in a world that prizes beauty and to find her own path to happiness.
