A trio of friends residing in an urban Czech housing project finds that happiness can come from the place where you least expect it. As the shadow of the country's largest chemical factory looms large over their bleak industrial suburb, Monika, Tonik, and Dasha hold out hope for a brighter future in another place. While supermarket employee Monika's dreams are built around the hope that she will someday venture to America to be with her boyfriend, George, Tonik secretly pines for Monika, and single mother Dasha finds comfort in the arms of a married man while slowly drifting from reality. As Tonik flees his conservative parents to live on the farm of his eccentric aunt, Dasha's grip on reality finally slips -- leaving her two young children in the care of Tonik and Monika. As things begin to look up for the willing but inexperienced new parents, a lifetime of happiness is finally within their reach.

i can see why it won many prizes.

There are great movie characters - and a fascinating look into contemporary Czech city life.

However, it's a bit on the down side so be sure to watch the funny little Backseat Bingo feature.
