Un film personal dar in acelasi timp un documentar al dramelor emigrarii multor cehi in 1968. In timp ce tancurile rusesti intrau in Praga, Madla fugea impreuna cu amantul ei, coregraful Lubos Hurza, la Oslo, unde avea sa se nasca fata lor, Margareta. Au urmat ani grei, in care au reusit sa devina nume importante in lumea teatrului si si-au construit casa la care visasera. Aflati pe culmile succesului, mama decide sa-si trimita de acasa fata de 14 ani. De atunci viata de familie isi pierde sensul.

Margareta reface drumul dezintegrarii familiei ei, incercand sa-si gaseasca casa si locul in Los Angeles, Praga si Oslo. Isi schiteaza copilaria cu ajutorul amintirilor, o copilarie singuratica, in care nu a simtit unitatea familiei.

The documentary film Home is not just a personal film. It also tells of the general trauma of emigration, which had an irreversible effect on many Czechs who ran away from the august invasion in 1968.

While the Russian tanks are rolling in on Prague, 18 year old pregnant Madla is running away with her married lover, stage designer, Lubos Hurza, to Oslo, Norway, where their daughter, Margareta, is born. During some hard working years they reach great success in the theater business and they build the house of their dreams. On the height of fame, beauty and success, the mother decides to send her 14 year old daughter away from the family. From that moment on they are never to live together as a family again.

Margareta is following the path of disintegration of her own family, and through the help of intimate confessions she is searching for answers to finding her lost home in Los Angeles, Prague and Oslo. Through her childhood memories we see a sketch of the family life she grew up in, a family life neglected by parents who never had time because of their high ambitions. Through dialogs she evokes memories of turning points in her family life, and she is trying with this to cure her homesickness, a longing for a home that hasn’t existed for 20 years.
