Director Alice Nellis's feature debut is set against the backdrop of elections in a small town. During one weekend, a committee meets in the polling station and the voters come and go, creating a mosaic of the most diverse characters and life problems. This sensitive tragicomedy allows the audience to peek into the lives of the individual protagonists and shows their desires, troubles, and everyday worries. With its awkwardness-centred poetics, the film follows the style of the Czech New Wave.
This distinctive personality of the Czech cinema graduated in screenwriting from FAMU in Prague and her directing debut Eeny Meeny won a Best Film award at San Francisco IFF. Her Some Secrets and Little Girl Blue were awarded Czech Lions and prizes at festivals here as well as abroad. She also works as a theatre director and was nominated for an Alfréd Radok Award.
