A film about adolescence, dreaming and the first big but forbidden love. In a poetic story about the relationship between good-humored a bit naive postman Jakub and beautiful gypsy Jolanka. The world of fantasy and soberness, the pragmatism of everyday life to which the pink dreaming of both of the main characters, after all, retreat. 
The film received the Czechoslovak Critics' Award for 1996, 
the Czech and Slovak Film Festival's Audience Award in Bratislava in 1977. Rosy Dreams is the only Slovak film made in the 70's screened in abroad.
