"Honey, don't you think there is some sense in what happened to us?"

The National Theatre star Alois Švehlík plays the part of a pastor, a mentor and most importantly a confessor of a husband and wife who are afraid of one another. Anna, represented by Lucie Trmíková, is in love but not with her husband. After so many years, she finally feels excited again and she is willing to abandon everything she has. A pastor as well, her husband, represented by Martin Pechlát, refuses to give her up. It's a fight with no winner. A sacrifice that has to be made. The faith that cannot be fawned over.

For the part of Anna, Lucie Trmíková won the Thalia Award in the Women dramatic performance category and the Theatre Newspaper Prize in the Women performance regardless the genre category in 2019.

The project was supported by: MKČR, MHMP, SFK, NČLF
