135 MIN | Cimrman, Smoljak, Svěrák

In December 1908 four members of the Podoli cold water swimming society set out on an expedition to conquer the North Pole. As they head bravely toward their goal, the intrepid  band of explorers must battle against  the depression of the polar night,  sub zero temperatures and a lack of food. Inevitably, tensions develop within the group. The second of the Cimrman’s comedy classics to come from the Cimrman English Theatre.
