Sixteen-year-old Marek leaves his village after he fails his exams and argues with his father. Arriving in Prague he is immediately mugged, and then picked up by Honza who turns him into a hustler, expecting him to last only a couple of years. Marek, however, turns out to be a lot smarter than that.
