The story of a girl Valérie is a meditation on youth and age, sexuality and death.
It's about the lightness and darkness of becoming a woman, about the mysteries of life. It opens the dusty drawers of ancient memories that are hidden from us under the layers of everyday matters. The ajar door of subconscious lets in the fears, desires and the unknown as well as the premonition. What's more, you will find out that the first menstrual cycle attracts the vampires. Valérie's transformation from a girl to a woman is a symbol of self-exploration in the world full of unknown intrigues and rules. Highly regarded work of Vítězslav Nezval is inspired by surrealist archaic novels. It is set in the magical imaginary past and it toys with the topics we know so intimately from our contemporary life such as the cult of youth, sexuality, the family taboos, creating and destroying myths.
