Effectively rendered destitute by the floods that washed through Prague in 2002, struggling young father and husband Jarda (Roman Luknár) eventually resorts to stripping stolen cars as a means of supporting his impoverished family. Jarda's wife Marcela (Ana Geislerová) is having difficulty accepting her husband's nefarious new career though, and before long she is packing her bags and rounding up the kids to seek shelter with her mother. Life at her mother's house isn't easy thanks to the constant presence of her mean-spirited step-father Richard (Jirí Schmitzer), but it simply seems as if there is no place left to go and Marcela's options have run dry.
