George Camel teaches Literature at a small town school and lives an orderly and ordinary private life. One day, a check for a million dollars falls into the hands of this ordinary and rather shy man. Two gangs of criminals are trying to get hold of the valuable piece of paper, and members of both of them move into the house in which George rents a room. Our teacher suddenly bumps into corpses wherever he goes and a merciless war of gangs is raging around him. He cannot stop wondering what is going on around him and what is happening to him – even the press is interested in him, namely a beautiful journalist who wants to write a story of a killer for her magazine. George is certainly not used to this kind of attention… —http://www.zlinfest.cz
