Gottland provides an unconventional look at Czechoslovak history of 20th century. This film consisting of short stories portrays peculiar fates - the Letna Plain with the largest statue of Stalin replaced by a huge billboard depicting Vaclav Klaus, the love affair between the actress Lida Baarova and Joseph Goebbels, the story of Eduard Kirchberger, a pilot/author in the services of the Czech State Security Service, Tomas Bata's vision of assembly line production and the tragic decision of Zdenek Adamec to self-immolate as a form of protest against the state of society. The film Gottland was inspired by the bestselling book of the same title by the Polish journalist Mariusz Szczygiel.
