A few months after the fall of communism in 1989, the path was open to the dissolution of Czechoslovakia. This was completed at the turn of 1992 and 1993, when two new states emerged - Czech Republic and Slovak Republic. Some people celebrated, some accepted the emergence of the new states with resignation, others with terrible grief. The brute strength of demagogy and populism motivated by personal interests succeeded in routing reason and decency, as so many times before in Europe of the 20th century. The film follows the course of landmark events from the Velvet Revolution of 1989 to the dissolution of the Czechoslovak state at the end of 1992 and shows how during this short time the mood in society changed.
