PLZEN: Tales for Emma / Pohádky pro Emu directed by Rudolf Havlík will screen at the 30th Finale Plzen, 20 – 26 April 2017.
The main character Peter Miller has been working for the Immigration Office in London for many years. One day a strange phone call from Prague interrupts his usual life rhythm. A single mother, who is in a hospital after a car accident, named him as the responsible person to take care of her child Emma in case of emergency. She claims Emma is his daughter. Peter is absolutely shocked. He meets Marie who, like Peter only lives for her work. Marie decides to help all of them.
Tales for Emma was produced by Dana Voláková and Michaela Flenerová of Fénix Film and coproduced by LS Productions.
Despite starring two of the most popular Czech actors, the film had only modest results at the Czech box office, coming in at the 52nd spot for 2016 with 419,000 USD following its release in November 2016. It fared even worse following its release in Slovakia, with 36,000 USD in 129th place.
