The film focuses on police detective, Helena Káhnová, who in the 1990´s managed to send to prison several dozen people in the so-called Berdych Gang case – including Berdych himself. The policewoman, as an extra work bonus, received 10 000 Czech crowns (370 4EUR) and a promotion which was revoked soon afterwards. What motivates a woman police officer to stand up to a mafia and what motivates a young documentary filmmaker to make contact with this mafia and shoot a film about them?
