After a long journey through Europe, the nomadic actor Táta Mour returns home with his wife Máma and their sons, eleven-year-old Eliáš and one-year-old Bratříček. They want to finally settle down and lead a normal life. But at home, nothing and no one is waiting for them. They are welcomed only by a self-appointed militia that has replaced the police. They are sent on the run, which turns into a wandering through a magical and cruel landscape inhabited by harmless weirdos and dangerous human packs. Their journey intersects with human destinies that reveal the interrelationships between the members of the fleeing family. A dad, at other times unable to cope with his own life, must begin to fight for his children and family. And also to let his son Elijah become an adult, perhaps more mature than he is.
