Prague, a bus station on a winter night. Radka, together with her little daughter, a suitcase and a gym bag, getting off a bus. On the streets of the same city, Ludek is returning home, aware that no-one is waiting for him there. For a couple of hours before dawn, what was meant to be a fateful connection with only one purpose might resemble a family. The Night of the Agama is about an encounter of people who rely on others’ help, yet they must primarily help themselves.
