Burning Bush begins with Palach's burning himself to death in January 1969 and a description of the turbulent atmosphere at the time. The events get dramatic after the scandalous accusation by MP Vilém Novotný, who speaks out at a Communist party meeting and downplays Palach's sacrifice with a nonsense about "cold fire". The main character of the story is the real life attorney-at-law Dagmar Burešová (appointed Minister of Justice after November 1989). This high-principled lawyer filed a libel suit against Vilém Novotný on behalf of Palach's family and decided to defend her clients in a seemingly hopeless legal suit, patiently collecting evidence in their favor.
