The Screen Guide

A modern-time 'ugly duckling' named Jan lives in a small, unspoilt town beside a lake in the Czech countryside. This particular ugly duckling is hen-pecked by his wife and hen-pecked by his mother-in-law - who owns the small and failing family hotel in which he lives and works. Jan's life is forever changed the day a party of Australian women arrive from Prague and one of them - Madeleine - takes an interest in him. Seeing nothing but a hen-pecked future ahead of him, Jan leaves home and makes his way to Prague.
