About the movie:

Barbora Chalupová, co-director of the successful “Caught in the Net/V síti”, tracks activists from Jsme fér as they strive towards a ground-breaking decision that would make Czech Republic the first former Eastern bloc country to institute “marriage for all”. The film follows the society-wide debate, including Prague Pride festival, televised clashes and parliamentary discussions aimed at a crucial vote. Czechia likes to come across as a liberal, open country, where everyone at least tolerates everyone else, but a cursory glance below the surface shows a more complex, much less friendly, reality. A clash between the progressive and conservative parts of the social spectrum is inevitable even here, and sometimes the proverbial “tolerance” doesn’t cross the boundaries of mere statements.
