An epic tale of love, courage and the will to survive.
Two very different people meet and fall in love in ZELARY, the Oscar-nominated romantic epic from director Ondrej Trojan. Eliska (Ana Geislerova), a sophisticated medical student, first meets Joza (Gyorgy Cserhalmi) at a Prague hospital, where her blood saves the injured sawmill worker's life. But Eliska also works with the Czech resistance and when she's betrayed to the Gestapo, Joza agrees to hide the young woman in his remote mountain village of Zelary. Forced to marry the rough-hewn peasant and pose as his wife, Eliska is at first defiant and angry. But with the passing of time, she comes to realize that there's more to Joza than first meets the eye. And so, even the war rages around them, Eliska and Joza soon find themselves deeply and passionately in love, until an unexpected twist of fate threatens to put their extraordinary romance to the ultimate test.
