Why is vaccination compulsory in the Czech Republic when most West European countries give parents a choice? Aren’t doctors vaccinating too early? Do Czech parents have sufficient information? The documentarist Tereza Reichová and her husband, Hynek Reich Štětka, look for answers to these and other questions. The birth of their daughter Žofka brought concerns for her health. The couple armed themselves with camera and filmed anything that could influence their decision whether they should or shouldn’t have their daughter vaccinated. During discussions with paediatricians, the Ministry of Health, their friends, Žofka’s grandmother, and each other, they discovered that forming a clear and well-founded opinion on this subject is by no means easy.
