Walking too Fast

Antonín hates his life and everything connected with it. He will do anything to change it. And, as a secret police officer of a totalitarian state, he can.
Czechoslovakia, 1982. The totalitarian regime seems invincible. Antonín, a member of the secret police, is full of unfocused rage and everything around him – his work and family life – wears him down and bores him. He becomes fixated on Klára, a girl he has no
hope of winning. He doesn’t know what he wants, but he wants it badly. It is not for love or infatuation, but only a burning desire to fulfil his fantasy of escaping from the cage of his mundane, meaningless life. Antonín’s pointless struggle to have Klára for himself not only turns him against the enemies of the regime, but also against his own people and the regime itself. However, when Antonín breaks the rules of the organization he serves, it is neither a civic nor even a political gesture, but rather a purely personal and frenzied act of rebellion.
