TRAILER

 

ABOUT THE FILM

Somewhere in China, there is a small town called Estate of Chinese-Czechoslovak Friendship. In the 1950s, farmers from Czechoslovakia brought tractors and other farming equipment to China as a way of promoting friendship between socialist countries. Local inhabitants remember this still today, and to honour that historic time, they are even building their own small "Chinese Prague" in a new part of the town. In order to promote friendship between nations, young Czech expert on China, Tomáš Jirsák, alias Havran [Czech for "Raven"], arrives together with his wife and three children and establishes a Department of Czech Studies at a local university. Through the eyes of a biased observer, we witness the adaptation of a deeply religious family to a new environment and reveal details from typical life in the world's most populous country, which we mostly only know about from the news. These include different customs, different culture and pervasive industrial pollution, but we also witness a desire to take on large tasks and non-traditional raising of sons. This is the story of the film "Happy Together".
