In Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia, Josef and Marie Cizek grudgingly agree to shelter David, a Jewish concentration camp escapee, in their tiny apartment. When Josef takes a job with a Nazi collaborator to ease suspicion, mayhem consumes the household. Filled with pungent humor and universal truths about the fragility of the human condition, director Jan Hrebejk's poignant film skirts a fine line between comedy and tragedy.
