“Right, why shouldn’t a few plump ladies have a bit of fun. Hold on, I’ll go get us some wine.”

The Czech population is ageing. In times of record levels of employment, more and more people are at risk of future unemployment (because of machines). How to make use of the years of rest? Does society even care about the tired and retired? How do actors age? Is it possible to act with vitality?

Greta, Erna and their maid, Marjánka, are retired, at the end of their working lives. Their bodies withered, they are sitting at a table and the only activity they can do freely without difficulty is speaking. The dialogue turns into monologues and compassion is collectively flushed down the toilet. How to have fun? Where do we go from here… if anywhere at all? A picture of a squeezed-out part of society, an examination of the interior of defective domestic democracy. Everyone has a right to tell their own stinking story!

Czech return of the triumphant debut comedy by the hell-raiser Werner Schwab (1958–1994). The ‘colossal liar’ from Graz is back in action.
