Czech Swan tells the story of a group of women who are capable of doing anything for their passion in life. They all live in a small Czech town called Horni Lhota (near Ostrava). Their daily life mainly consists of housework and taking care of their grandchildren. This is nothing out of the ordinary. When they spend time together dancing, then they feel like they are alive, and this allows each of them to fulfill their dreams.
