In the former Czechoslovakia, 1950s, police captain Hakl investigates a jewelery robbery. Clues point to a group of Jewish immigrants as the thieves, and State Security contends that they have stolen the jewels to finance a Zionist operation aided by the United States. The film focuses on the horrendous show trials that condemned many innocent people to death. One of the stars of the film, Sebastian Koch, co-starred in an earlier Oscar winner, The Lives of Others. Koch’s new film, expertly directed by David Ondricek, takes an equally scathing look at the Czech State Security apparatus.
