The beautifully shot dark comedy CLOWNWISE (Klauni) tells an emotional story of love and forgiveness. Oskar, Max, and Victor, once a superstar clown trio called The Busters, split over a heartbreaking disagreement. The trio’s performances personified freedom as the strains of communism weighed heavily upon the nation. After thirty years in exile, Oskar returns to Prague where an unavoidable confrontation ensues with his old pals from the past.
