Death in the Saddle/Smrt v sedle
On the state stud-farm, Tomas (Rudolf Jelinek) is preparing to become a jockey together with other boys. He loves to read cowboy stories and Western pulp magazines and his passion makes him a laughing-stock of his friends and pretty Vera, his couch's daughter. Tomas looks for refuge with aging jockey Kosina (Eduard Dubsky) and listens in admiration to his tales of old jockey glory. He doesn't suspect that Kosina had to leave the racecourse because of fraud and that he is still looking for ways to get easy money.
