Little Jan is the only descendant of the knight Bořek. One day he runs away from home in search of the Holy Land. The boy soon loses his way but his solitude and endeavour to overcome his fear of the dark make for an exciting adventure. Václav Kadrnka creates an adaptation of a poem by Jaroslav Vrchlický “The Little Crusader of Svojanov” and encourages our imagination to engage in a poetic, cinematic pilgrimage.
