In 1995, the son of the Slovakian president was kidnapped and beaten unconscious in Austria. An investigation into the kidnapping led to the highest political circles — the Slovakian secret service. Oskar F., witness to the kidnapping, breaks his silence and testifies, but has to leave the country in fear of his life. Shortly after, his friend and only connection to his home country, Robert, is found dead under suspicious circumstances. With the help of Oskar, and documents from the years in question, the film attempts to reconstruct what happened.
