Sometimes children just do not feel like going to school. When a little curly boy with a school bag finds a lost key on the street, he uses it to unlock fantasy chambers in his head. Čech’s paintings, drawing inspiration from the style of Jiří Trnka and Jan Černý, accompany a modestly sized libretto commenting on the landscapes of opportunity that the boy explores. Later, with the help of a hole in the pocket, the “baton” is passed on to the boy’s schoolmate and a new portion of adventures about freedom, bound by neither time nor space, gets a chance to testify to the powers of a boy’s soul emerged in dreams.
