AT FULL THROTTLE
Láska pod kapotou
The story of a life of struggle in a region left behind by a country’s transition to a market economy. The main protagonist is the divorced yet determined, dogged, fighting-against-the-odds fifty-something ex-miner Jaroslav whose health has thwarted his lifelong dream to become a racing driver. A new relationship with childhood sweetheart Jitka brings frustrated Jaroslav new hope in his personal life as well as his motor-racing dream: Jitka is an excellent driver who could hardly find a better mentor and mechanic than Jaroslav. Nevertheless, Jaroslav cannot escape his past and the fulfilment of his new hope remains uncertain.
