A richly resonant drama exploring the intersection of personal lives and communist state surveillance in their own country. Twenty years after the Velvet Revolution, not a month passes without new reports of people whose fates were manipulated decades earlier by the notorious STB. A philandering young sound engineer's involvement in such a TV documentary about his father-in-law is our entry point into a secret family history loaded with what, to the younger man's jaundiced eye, look like out-and-out betrayals. The truth, of course, is much more interesting.
