Valerie is a 13-year-old teenager who lives with her grandmother in a village in Czechoslovakia visited by many characters halfway between fantasy and reality. A company of travelling comedians full of prodigies, a bishop of undetermined age, vampires and Pulcinellas, badgers and a half-brother that she did not know existed. A fantasy full of light and imagination about the journey between childhood and youth, from the other side of the iron curtain of the '70s accompanied by the soundtrack of the unforgettable music of Luboš Fišer.
