20 years ago, a car ran over a man at a pedestrian crossing in Prague's Čimická street. It was my dad. I couldn't walk across that crosswalk for years. A short poetic film from a place that has a special meaning for me and a glimpse into the relationship with my father.

The film received first prize of the My Street Films Award as well as Student Jury Award.
