Early in the 1990s, the Czech Republic was changing, desperately trying to enter a Western capitalistic lifestyle. But the change was slow motion compared to the turbulent life of a young female journalist trying to do it all - end her first marriage, mother two kids, while drowning in lots of work. One could also say, divorcing chin-first, pulling new jobs while juggling old jobs, surrounding herself with loyal friends, and marrying a new man, the love of her life, who was - ooohh my god! - a foreigner. How scandalous!
She is forced to fight with old traditional thinking, the socialistic school system, and a judgmental society. But she is never alone. With the help of her faithful friends, family, and a refreshing dose of humor, she finally wins her life game of Czech Mate. And finally, a fresh start. Canada, here they come!
