Likeable Vojta is a shy boy and his family is crazy. Choleric father, who once didn´t manage to cross the La Manche Channel, wants him to be a race swimmer and his loving mother, former star of children's ice show, believes the son to become a talented pianist. However Vojta has quite different priorities - particularly the red-haired classmate Ela, charming synchronized swimmer, who leaves to Paris in November. If Vojta don´t do something crucial, Ela will disappear behind the iron curtain forever. It is the year 1989.
