Dreamer Jakub (Juraj Nvota) jumps at the opportunity to show off for down-to-earth Jolana (Iva Bittová). Will she be his reverie of a "Gypsy woman," will he be her fancy of a deep-rooted Slovak? The cheerfulness of the images of an expectant encounter between the Slovak and the Romani, a first in Central European cinema, is enhanced by the soundtrack of a Romani folk song (O poštaris avel..., "The postman is coming..."), whose artificiality is counteracted by the addition of the rattling sounds with shots of the clunky bicycle.
