This is a classic tragicomedy set in the country of Bohemia. It is a tale of mistaken identity, assumptions, and deceptions - a classic love triangle. A man sees his wife and his best friend together holding hands in the garden. The friend has been staying with them for nine months - and the wife is expecting. Would you blame the husband for putting two and two together? The result is, inevitably, a broken friendship, a shattered marriage, and an abandoned baby.
