Jan is maturing into a man in communist Czechoslovakia of the 1970´s. To avoid being called up into the army he takes refuge in a psychiatric clinic where he gathers strength to flee the country. His tense crossing of the border moulds the core discord of whether it is possible to find real freedom within oneself or whether it is necessary to make a run for it and seek it elsewhere.
