A record of one of Zorka Ságlová’s last land-art actions in October 1972. In the abandoned Vřísek Castle in the village of Zahrádky near Česká Lípa, a group of invited participants released hundreds of inflated condoms. The action was one of Ságlová’s many land-art interventions such as Laying Napkins near Sudoměř (1970) and Throwing Balls into Bořín Pond (1969). Participants included the members of the Plastic People and their friends. The film concludes with several spontaneous events such as the recreation of the Stalin monument and an improvised concert by Milan Hlavsa in a nearby cave.
