When a couple, Karel (Jan Hartl) and Bozena (Veronika Zilková), learn that they cannot bear any children it causes the wife great distress and in denial she pretends she is pregnant. The husband tries to ease his wife’s suffering by presenting her with a pretend infant which he’s fashioned from a large tree root. She takes to it like a suckling to mother’s milk, which only aggravates the problem.
