The film opens in 1939 Czechoslovakia. Horst, a Czech-German Nazi collaborator married to a German woman and co-worker of Josef, brings food to the invalid Josef and his wife Marie, who are Czechs.

When Josef finds David, who had escaped a concentration camp in occupied Poland after first being sent to the Theresienstadt concentration camp in northern Bohemia, Josef and Marie decide to hide him in their apartment. Horst makes an unannounced visit, bringing presents as usual. Marie is ambivalent about their secret: On one hand she never misses an opportunity to blame her husband for bringing in the Jew, but on the other she is merciful and sympathetic with the poor kid locked in the closet day and night. She suggests that Josef accepts Horst's job offer evicting Czech Jews from their homes, so as to get more protection and deflect possible suspicions. Josef accepts and is considered a collaborator by the neighbor Franta (who had tried to give David over to the Nazi authorities, when he first escaped from a concentration camp).

In an attic full of discarded junk, a pretty doll called Buttercup lives in an old trunk together with her friends, the marionette Sir Handsome, the lovable Teddy Bear, a Mechanical Mouse and the plasticine creature, Laurent. When Buttercup is snatched and taken off to the Land of Evil, her pals set out on a wondrous and daring adventure to rescue her from the all-powerful Head of State. Originally produced in the Czech language, the meticulously crafted animated feature is set in a magical world of toys and knick-knacks stored in the attic of a home in Prague. Following the symbolism of the Cold War era that impacted director Barta and the Czech Republic, the world of the attic is divided into the land of happy toys in the west and the land of evil in the east. The despotic Head of State rules over the evil empire of the east with a band of sinister minions, insects and rotted vegetables. When the lovely "Buttercup" is kidnapped and held prisoner by The Head, it is up to her friends - a teddy bear, a mechanical mouse and marionette puppet - to cross the international boundary and attempt their daring rescue. A teddy bear, a mechanical mouse, and a marionette join forces to save their kidnapped friend, Buttercup the doll, from the denizens of the Land of Evil.

Actors Jenovéfa Boková, Lenka Vlasáková

Anežka (Jenovéfa Boková) est une jeune femme tranquille, journaliste et musicienne, pour qui toute relation, familiale ou amoureuse doit se dérouler sans aspérité, même au prix d'une renonciation à son propre point de vue, qu'elle se cache à elle-même comme elle se refuse à l'exprimer. Ce film présente des situations de la vie quotidienne, que ce soit avec ses amants, déjà mariés et pères de famille, sa grand-mère octogénaire volubile et atteinte d'un cancer, sa mère dépressive au long cours, son père dynamique, son grand-père sénile à l'hôpital. La réalisatrice donne une grande importance aux paysages naturels, avec notamment un panorama récurrent vallonné présenté aux différentes saisons de l'année marquant ainsi le temps qui passe. Dans la seconde partie du film, l'héroïne finit par se dévoiler un peu, notamment à l'occasion d'une visite chez une psy, marquée par des silences durables ou sa nuit avec un musicien slovaque. Les dernières séquences marquent une ouverture sur la nature et une sérénité optimiste.
