Beauty in Trouble explores a young woman’s romantic dilemma - torn between a primal connection and the need to provide for her children, she loves two men.  Set against the backdrop of the 2002 floods in Prague, Beauty in Trouble is full of unexpected twists, humor and amazing performances.  The title comes from the Robert Graves poem that was adapted into a Czech popular song in the 1980s and performed in the film by Czech star Raduza
