Based on a short story by Russian playwright Maxim Gorky, Boles is a stop-motion animation about an author suffering writer's block. Filip lives in a poor neighbourhood but dreams of writer's glory and luxurious lifestyle in a more prosperous part of town. One day Filip gets a knock on the door. His neighbour Tereza, an older prostitute that Filip tries to avoid by all means, asks him to write a letter for her fiancé. Filip agrees but then a week later Tereza shows up at his doorstep again, asking him to write an answer to the previous letter.
