MR. KUKA’S ADVICE
A story of contrast between West and East - stereotypes and cultural differences but also on the things that they have in common. Waldemar, an unspoilt, naive young man, one day decides to explore the unknown West. He asks a certain Mr. Kuka for advice, who gives him a few lessons on how to behave in the West and why he should be careful so he won't come back in a "How can I serve you?" T-shirt. Kuka suggests that Waldemar should go to Vienna. Yet at the bus station Waldemar starts suspecting that Mr. Kuka’s advice doesn’t always correspond to reality.
Based on the story "Herrn Kukas Empfehlungen" by Radek Knapp.
