Švankmajer, the Czech genius of surrealism, explores the bizarre erotic impulses of various individuals in modern Prague. One man collects porn magazines, chickens and umbrellas to fashion himself a weird creature. His neighbour does similar things with straw. And then they meet up...Their newsagent tinkers with anatomical additions to his hi-tech TV set so he can gloat over the beautiful newsreader. But the newsreader keeps carp in a bowl in her bedroom for bizarre reasons, while her neglectful husband hears operatic climaxes in his head whenever he encounters saucepan lids, fur, nails and latex fingers. Finally, there's the postwoman, who rolls bread into doughballs for very odd purposes, after delivering to the first man an ominous note simply saying 'Sunday'.
