The Gilded Red Cage examines the human aspects of life under socialism and how they changed after the Velvet revolution in 1989 with a charming mix of humor, irony and sadness.
· The Gilded Red Cage Part I: Hana’s Shame portrays the intimate internal dialogue of a woman in love whose young life spans the socialist and post-socialist periods in Slovakia. She learns to come to terms with one fact - the main figures in her life at once love her and destroy her.
· The Gilded Red Cage Part II: The Canary who Ate the Cat captures the contradictions of socialist life via an endearing chameleon-turncoat-survivor who promises everything, yet delivers nothing…and still be beloved.
