Želary was the Czech Oscar contender for Best Foreign Language Film in 2004 and is set in WWII. Eliška (Aňa Geislerová), a nurse and rebel messenger, is forced into hiding from the Nazis after members of her group are exposed and persecuted. With her life at stake, she is forced to integrate into village life and marry Joza (György Cserhalmi), a local farmer she barely knows.
