HURIKÁN | IN PRODUCTION
Damn! Beer is running out at Hurikán’s favourite beer stand. The bartender is getting desperate and she’ll have to close early. However, Hurikán has a crush on her and thus, he offers to get her a new keg before the beer runs out completely!
He sets out to get it in one of the wildest districts of Prague, where he is forced to deal with local folks as well as police officers.
Robbed, chased and beaten-up Hurikán finally succeeds and manages to get the keg… but he is at the end of his tether and so thirsty he can’t help himself: he taps the keg and gets smashed immediately. Wallowing on a dusty ground he’s awaiting the alcohol to cloud his mind completely so he forgets that his chance with the bartender ruined forever.
