Teodor Kuhn's feature debut is inspired by a true criminal case that happened in Slovakia in 2005. The suspects in the attack against a Bratislava university student were a gang of Neo-Nazis, but the mistakes and failures by the police and judicial system complicated arresting the culprits. The film reflects the devastated family's fight for justice, and also the state of society today.
