In the Mood for Underwear

Jirka is utterly bored in his marriage. Apart from old furniture, dripping faucet and giant panties littering the apartment there’s not much left, so he decides to look for something to spice up his life. Watching his young neighbor undress seems to be the perfect solution. Except one day his innocent pastime turns into obsession and Jirka decides to act.
