When Cows Fly

Až budou krávy lítat

A young, full-figured elementary school teacher carefully nurtures her inferiority complex. When accompanying her friend to a course of burlesque dancing, she gets the chance to become attractive despite her ample figure. People around her, however, are not prepared for a “fat girl” in the nude, and she loses her job, her family and her reputation. Will she be able to prove to herself and others that being fat isn’t a disability or even a hindrance? Is it better to hide both problem and complex, or fight them head-on with openness?
