In the 1950's, Ludvik Jahn was expelled from the Communist Party and the University by his fellow students, because of a politically incorrect note he sent to his girlfriend. Two and a half years in army, a year in military prison and three years in the mines because his colleagues and Party comrades took very seriously a silly joke. Fifteen years later, Ludvik tries to get his revenge by seducing Helena, the wife of one of his accusers.

The current season of Cinema Classics till May is dedicated to Czechoslovak New Wave. Each month one of the programmes films will have three screenings with subtitles in Latvian and English. Some of the screenings will be accompanied by introductions and lectures.

Supported by State Culture Capital Foundation and Embassy of the Czech Republic in Riga.
