Lidice massacre in 1942 is undoubtedly the darkest moment of recent Czech history, being the only act of genocide during the war, recognized by Nazi Germany. The film brings together three stories of broken destinies of this episode black. The first is that of a family where the father accidentally kills his son and sentenced to prison. The second brings to the fore the pretext used by the Nazis for the massacre, a letter that was obviously a lie innocent, seeking to hide her marital infidelity. The third story is about fear, about accountability and about the compromise that someone has to do it to survive, but lost his dignity and honor.
