A writer named Ladislav terrorizes a nineteenth-century Bohemian village with his mischief, until war breaks out and he is forced to hide in a monastery where he unexpectedly discovers his hidden desires. Peacock is at once a historical picture book, a queer literary encyclopedia, and a black comedy based on a true story about revered Czech writer Ladislav Stroupeznický.
