Reuniting the creative team responsible for Kolya, 1996 Oscar® winner for Best Foreign Film, under Czech director Jan Sverak, Dark Blue World tells the story of the friendship between two Czech pilots, the veteran Franta (Ondrej Vetchý) and fresh-faced young trainee Karel (Krystof Hádek). They escape Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia, make their way to Britain and join the Royal Air Force. When Karel's plane is hit and he bails out in the countryside, he is taken in by Susan (Tara Fitzgerald), an Englishwoman whose husband is missing in action. In a moment of weakness, she makes love to Karel, relieving him of his virginity. But later, when Karel takes Franta to meet his "new love," Franta and Susan are attracted to each other, leading to a situation that will put the two men's friendship to the ultimate test.
After Czechoslovakia falls to the Nazis, intrepid pilot Franta, and several flyer friends defect toEngland and fly bombing missions for the Allies. Franta and his best friend, Karel, both fall in love with the same woman, Susan. Karel dies in a crash, but Susan stays with her husband.
