Annotation

A captivating, dramatic story about horrible consequences of social decay in the period or relativization of fundamental moral values in Czechoslovakia is inspired by an authentic tragic story. Unfortunately, seemingly senseless violence and mass murders of innocent and unsuspecting human beings that have still been taking place in different parts of the world attest to the universality of the films’ message.
