Jakub, a dreamy mail carrier in a sleepy village, spends his days playing pranks on everyone, resenting his father with his mother’s tacit support, and admiring Jolana from the neighboring Romani hamlet — until Jolana responds. Faced with mistrust from both Jakub’s and Jolana’s families and venom from segments of their communities, Jakub pulls one more, grave prank that, he imagines, will help support the two teenagers as they take the train to the nearby city in order to live together.
