SCRIPT Slávek Horák, Rudolf Suchánek

It's the summer of '68 and the young Czech playwright Vaclav Havel is enjoying the heady atmosphere of new- found freedom as the iron grip of Soviet repression gradually loosens throughout Eastern Europe. In Havel's Prague, politics are as exciting as theatre, sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll. Havel, though, is a comfortable and acclaimed playwright, and he's determined to avoid conflict that might upset his world. He resists confrontation with the political authorities - led by the celebrated politician Alexander Dubcek - and he tries to carry out his romantic escapades without undermining his marriage to his beloved Olga.
