One problem inevitably leads to another and before long Klima, the celebrated jazz trumpeter (and reluctant philanderer), receives a phone call announcing that a young nurse with whom he spent a brief night at a fertility spa is pregnant. How on earth can Klima prevent his wife from finding out? And how can he persuade the nurse Ruzena to have an abortion? His beautiful jealous wife, her equally jealous boyfriend, doctors, nurses, a political dissident and even an American millionaire are drawn into the negotiations as, over five fraught days at the Czech fertility spa for women, Milan Kundera unfolds his hilarious and brilliantly subversive comedy on our sexual life.
