Six characters pursue solitary pleasures… Mr Pivoňka builds a chicken costume and throws rocks at an effigy of his neighbour, Mrs Loubalová. She humiliates an effigy of him (their fevered imaginations bringing the effigies to jerkily animated life). Meanwhile, the local postwoman rolls pieces of bread up into small balls, which she sucks up her nose and ears. Mr Beltinsky constructs various objects based on the general theme of rolling pins covered in intriguing textures with which to stroke himself, and his newsreader wife reads the news while having her toes sucked by two giant carp. The newsagent, obsessed with Mrs Beltinsky, builds an extension to his television that will embrace him when she appears on screen.
