A Czech government scientist invents a machine that removes the contents of people's dreams from inside their heads, guaranteeing a more peaceful night's rest. In a case of technology gone hilariously wrong, a cartoonist's comic book saga leaps (literally) from his head and into the real world, plunging buxom heroine Jessie (Olga Schoberova), a malevolent cowpoke, and a muscular superman into the streets of Prague. Surreal farce also stars Karel Effa and Juraj Visny. 80 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: Czech; Subtitles: English. In Czech with English subtitles.
