The movie is playing out in the streets of Prague and presents us Jiří who has been earning a living as a street musician for a couple of years. In the interview, Jiří reflects the issue of the legitimacy in Prague and ever-changing permissions for street production. Last but not least, the movie provides an insight into the conflicts and friendships which are developing in the streets every single day.

Elva Ambía Rebatta’s first language is Quechua, but when she left her town in Peru as a young woman to find work in the United States, speaking Spanish and English became critical for her to survive. While Quechua – a language indigenous to South America – continues to be spoken around the world as a result of such migration stories, UNESCO and other initiatives recognize it as an endangered language. Now in her seventies, Elva decides to help cultivate a Quechua-speaking community in New York City. Living Quechua follows Elva through the challenges and successes of trying to keep Quechua alive.

The film is about the lacrosse, and its importance for the Haudenosaunee people (represented by the Iroquois Nationals), and for the Czech people (represented by the lacrosse organisations, scouts, and woodcrafters). In 2011, the World Indoor Lacrosse Championship was held in Prague, the Czech Republic. It was the first time when the Iroquois National lacrosse men’s team visited the Czech Republic, using their Haudenosaunee passports.
However, the film is not focused only on reporting of the Championship agenda. Furthermore, it highlights the essential spiritual, political and sport aspects of the lacrosse for the Haudenosaunne and Czech communities. It also explains the formation of this originally Native American game in the Central Europe, including the hint of political issues in the former communist Czechoslovakia.
