Jazz War - A Portrait Without the Portrayed

Vít Klusák, the director, shoots a film about his father, Emil Viklický - a famous music composer - who refuses to appear in the film. Thus, a portrait without the portrayed emerges. The director finds a double for his father (whom he barely knows) through a classified ad published in the newspaper. The miner Ota Jeneral, who responds to this ad, gets the fathers role.
