To the Woods/Cesta do lesa
To the Woods is a sequel to Vorel's successful Out of the City (2000). Having abandoned city life long ago, the Marak's live in a quaint cottage on the outskirts of a small rural village. Honza earns a very modest living as a forest laborer, while his wife Marketa works as a masseuse and alternative healer. Anyna, their nymph-like, pubescent daughter, explores the verdant landscape by night, communicating with the stags that still make the endangered woodland their home. It is in these wanderings that Anyna makes the acquaintance of locally born-and-bred forest ranger and hunter, Ludva. Meanwhile her parents are persecuted by local authorities, with her mother being taken into custody for her popular magic mushroom seance. As their financial situation becomes increasingly dire, a solution emerges following an unexpected life change.
