Synopsis:
Vaclav Ving is a man in his forties and is considered by many to be the village idiot. With a personality that
is bordering on autism, he lives with his widowed mother on the outskirts of the village. Villagers see him
as the local fool, nothing but a constant annoyance, but there is also a skeleton in the village closet
concerning his father's death.
He gets no mercy from his brother Frantisek either. According to him, Vaclav should be put into an
institution. Ever since their childhood, he has competed with Vaclav for the attention of their mother, and
now it seems even his mistress Lida is attracted by the wild, but charmingly innocent Vaclav.
The truth about the death of Vaclav and Frantisek's father finally emerges, and Lida's attention to Vaclav
crosses the line of innocence. These events trigger an explosive situation between the brothers that
spreads to the village. The tragic and criminal consequences that follow cannot be ignored as the mere
actions of a village fool. Vaclav has to pay for his actions and everyone else in the village has to take
another look at themselves in the mirror…
