The film focuses on the rise of a new system under the communist rule after 1968 and the circumstances of its fall in the late 1980s. It examines the issue through testimonies of the representatives of normalization political elite, exposing their self-deception, lust for power, mutual disagreements, disputes and behind-the-scene activities which resulted in the events of November 1989. A study of the mechanisms behind historical events and their orchestrators as they truly unravelled. What does great power look like under scrutiny through the optics of the directly involved parties?
