This multi-layered story follows the lives of two brothers who separate after falling in love with the same girl. One brother is an expert in neurosurgery and lives a bohemian life in the capital. The other is a veteran who served in Afghanistan and takes care of his two daughters in a small village. Although they share the same origins and social backgrounds, their lifestyles are completely different. However, they do have one thing in common—a longing for love. The debuting director and writer Roman Kašparovský entrusted the main roles to Czech leading actors Ondřej Vetchý and Jiří Langmajer. The film was made under the auspices of Czech Defense Minister Alexandr Vondra and the military scenes were shot at the Czech military base in Afghanistan.
