An insight into the many ordinary and eccentric lives of the villagers of Kersko and the visitors from nearby Prague who escape city life there on the weekends. The movie begins with a group of men on their bicycles leaving the local pub. They are drunk and happy, singing songs as they leave together to their houses. On the road, they come across the local policeman who removes the valves from their cycles and asks them to walk home as they are drunk. Their happiness disappears, the singing stops and they walk home. Morning we see a hungover guy who is bossed around by his wife and daughter. He doesn't feel like staying home and wants to go out. He never speaks against them, but always murmurs when he is told to do something. There is a group of people who seem very polished and educated. They stand out from the rest of the characters with their philosophical thoughts and discussions. The local inn keepers, a couple, can't seem to keep their hands off of each other. But the story really comes to life when two young men who work in the fields see a pig and try to hunt it down.
