Nazi imprisonment survivor Otto opens an upscale hair styling salon in the center of Prague where his wife and her sisters work. As his business gets underway, a looming darkness builds with the communists’ rise to power. The state expropriates Otto’s salon, putting a pompous young lad in charge. Soon it becomes apparent that Otto must disappear or risk losing his life. Will he ever find “home” again? Length: 113 minutes. In Czech with English subtitles.
