A feature debut depicting the director and a girl named Bára, daughter of immigrants, who together discover the tradition of “tramping” – woodcraft with hiking and sense of community with the nature, based on the romantic idea of the American Wild West - in the Czech republic. Bára’s parents immigrated to Canada and she came to the Czech Republic to get to know the country of her roots. Honza is from Prague, he sings and plays the guitar. He always wanted to go to New York and be like Bob Dylan. Bára and Honza go on a trip to see the traditional tramping sites, some as old as a hundred years. The film follows their journey to the land of the free on the backdrop of only a forest, a campfire and vast skies. In the settlements of Ascalona, Toronto or Ztracenka they find the remains of a fantasy the Czech Tramps have been finding a refuge in every weekend.
