Mastr E (2015)
Girls and boys, do you have any idea how lending works? Embarrassment comes and goes when it's least expected. What’s it like in a foreign country? Like at home under a blanket. There are a lot of people, each one of them sometimes gets embarrassed. Manipulation - it's no fun. A television school of proper etiquette for children. Master E, a mysterious face in a tablet, and a simple girl named Klárka are trying to save the jinxed Kingdom of Etiquette, which has forgotten how to be polite. Only the true Grand Master of Etiquette can help them. Anyone can become this if they wish to find a way to be attentive and polite, even without clear instructions on how to do so.
