Animated short based on an urban legend from the era of Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakia during the WW II. The phantom avenger with spring-heeled shoes jumps above the streets of Prague and fights the occupants. He has to stop the Nazis from waking up the Golem - a dreadful artificial being from The Old Jewish Town. Czech variation on classic superheroes. Apart from them it wasn’t created by the fantasy of comic writers. This one was created directly from the folk tales.

Writer / Marek Berger    Editor / Marek Berger    Sound / Adam Levý    Music / Jakub Kudláč    Animator / Tereza Mašláňová, Marek Berger, Daniel Stanchev
