While serving the cream of Prague society, humble waiter, Jan Dite (Ivan Barnev) dreams of owning his own hotel and becoming a millionaire. Full of desire and ambition, he hustles his way towards his dream. But getting a fortune and keeping it are two different things. Directed by celebrated Czech director Jiri Menzel and set in German-occupied Czechoslovakia during World War II, this sumptuous, bitter-sweet comedy explores the gradual maturing of an ambitious man who, suddenly in love and guided by stupidity rather than opportunism, finds himself on the side of the occupying power.
