Roman is a top level cyclist recovering from an injury through hard work and strict regimen. To improve his performance, he even sleeps in an oxygen tent installed in his bedroom. This is a bitter pill to swallow for his wife, Šarlota, whose long-time wish is to have a child. They both get lost in their obsessions and improve their bodies to a point where they might even frighten each other. Domestique is a strong movie about the destructive effect of our self-centeredness and the loss of the ability to communicate.
