Olga Havlová was the closest and most trustworthy companion of Václav Havel, a friend who was never a spoilsport – on the contrary, she initiated the fun herself – a generous host, passionate games-player and mushroom-gatherer, a nature-lover, sharp commentator, courageous and diligent dissident; a wise and practical woman, always with her feet on the ground and true to herself. In 1990 she founded the Výbor dobré vůle (Committee of Good Will), still doing its good work today.
The Filmmakers: We had no intention to reveal new facts and surprising truths. We will encounter Olga Havlová in the film, listen to snatches of her monologues and be able to think them over when we return from the cinema.
It is an attempt to reconstruct her personality through her attitudes to life, and to present the time in which she lived.
The last word in the film goes to Olga Havlová herself.
