The Sun in a Net is a lyrical story about the emotions shared by two young people who feign cynicism and rejection of society in an attempt to hide their insecurities, lack of experience and fear of adult life. It was the very first Slovak film to take on the theme of the natural differences of values and social life in urban and rural settings. The film is considered the beginning of the New Wave in Slovak and Czech cinema of the 1960s.
The Sun in a Net is presented on digitally restored print on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the film.
