Jan Dítě — the protagonist — is released from prison, after long-time imprisonment. He lives in a house on the border, in a deserted village that was once inhabited by Germans. On his way home, Jan remembers the times when he was a young waiter and sadly recalls his former talent for making money and first sexual experiences. These were the times spent not only on learning the secrets of serving tables and making love, but also the moment when Jan Dítě developed an unlimited ability to dream about success and discovered the charm of wealth.
