15-part long performed series; our subject was written by Lucie Konečná and Magdaléna Turnovská. Directed by Jan Pecha and Ján Sebechlebský. Produced by Eallin TV for the Czech Television in 2012.

About the series

The fifteen episodes draw the spectators in the life of five main characters – one dad and four moms or moms-to-be. They all share one sandpit, where they meet, as well as the everyday fight with parental duties.

We can have our own life. A child changes everything. You, too.

“I believe we have created a series, where children are not only lovely coulisses, but also a source of entertainment, however – as well as in real life – they are the central point of the adult´s world,” says Lucie Konečná, the scenarist. “Each heroine has her own dramatic story inspired by life as such, so there is a great probability that spectators identify with it,” Pavel Anděl, the series producer and the author says.

About documentary

The film tells a story about a man that was born in 1963 in a small Czech village in the time of communism. He finished school and went to war. After the war he got children. At that point he already identified himself as gay and he decided to leave his wife and children and move to Prague where he worked as a cook. He started to discover night life of Prague’s gay community that lived mostly hidden from the majority. He chose a name Sonja Butterfly and he plunged into realization of his dreams and desires. He became a member of a transvestite group in which for a couple of years he became a real star. The group got a name Butterflies and in the middle 90’s it became an appearance of Prague’s club scene. Their appearance in a club called Střelce was sold out, the tickets were purchased weeks in advance, the public was full of popular artists… Appearance of the group Butterflies belonged to the night and Sonja experiences a period of glory. But only as a man disguised as a woman in the lights of cabaret.

Luboš, as he was called, was an extremely shy man, by day he did not communicate with almost anyone, he tried not to attract any attention to him. He did not believe in himself and left everything to Sonja. Sonja was recognized from all sides, mainly due to her stage presence. She portrayed “strong” singers (T. Turner, G. Gaynor, S. Bassey, H. Hegerová). She helped beginners transvestites in hard times of searching for their identity. She artistically managed to work with her big emotions and irony as well, and even the ones that didn’t like her became her fans. The popularity grew so much that the group Butterflies opened at the turn of millennium their own great cabaret Atmosphere, where they put to use their deserved fame. The fame had its dark side as well, so after a long term conflicts the group broke apart. The members went on working solo which couldn’t compare to their previous fame and the level of their solo productions dropped sharply. Sonja refused this and she began to nurture prostitution as a woman with penis that is available in your house and on your phone. She wanted to continue to be loved so she provided her clients a mans hug in a woman’s packing. After a year she started to miss performing so she began working on it. She reopened cabaret Atmosphere and because of her pervious success she failed to follow it up and she came about everything. For some time, she worked as a prostitute, she became fully addicted to drugs and began to lose herself. When Sonja was lost, Luboš lost everything and became a homeless person. How he lives in the Prague House of Light which helps abandoned HIV positive people.

The movie has a form of an interview with personal archives and a record of one-time return of Butterflies which was held specially for the film. The interviews were conducted in years 1999 – 2014, in the period of her prostitution, the attempt to reopen cabaret Atmosphere and after its wrecking. Each episode of her life Sonja describes in the costumes of her favorite singers. The last conversation is always led with Luboš – Sonja would not be able to live a life of a homeless person. Sonja does not exist anymore and Luboš had to face it all.
