Actress Edita Brychtová IN PERSON for Q&A after the film!

In this sci-fi drama, Olda suffers from a total lack of energy and falls into a coma. A natural healer tries to rejuvenate him. In doing so, he learns that Olda has an “alter ego” inside the TV that sucks the energy from Olda every time he tunes in.
