Chasing 50
(nr) 97 min
in Czech with English subtitles

Set in the beautiful snowy Krkonoše Mountains, CHASING 50 centers around the Three Kings 50 km Cross-Country Ski Race. Pavka is the oldest living member of the traditional cross-country skiing Bulan family. His son Jura worries him. Instead of the skiing race, he is interested in a totally different 50 — seducing mature women. In a world of mountain lodges, an avalanche of events and memories ensues. Delve into this directorial debut filled with original music and comedy.
