Mandragora is a 1997 film by Polish director Wiktor Frodecki that chronicles the decline of a German boy who becomes the dregs of society. Marek (Miroslav Caslavka) feels as though he and his father will never get along, and at the age of 15 he flees to Prague to escape his home life. When Marek becomes desperate for money, he tries his hand at prostitution. His first experience does not go well, as he is drugged, raped, and left without money. Eventually he befriends fellow prostitute David (David Svec), and the two work the streets together. When pornography producer Krysa (Kostas Zerdolaglu) hires the young boys for a film, they are asked to have intercourse with each other. It becomes clear that Marek's affinity for David is more than plutonic. Eventually Marek's father comes to Prague looking for him, but the tragedy deepens when they are unable to find each other, despite being increasingly close.
