How does it feel like to become an invader without your consent? How can big politics destroy lives of ordinary people? With known, as well as never published archival materials from the whole Europe and Russia we tell a family story of the director Anna Kryvenko who found out a couple of years ago that her grand-uncle was one of the Soviet soldiers to occupy Czechoslovakia in 1968. The film touches very topical problems, like fragmentation of personal and national memory, inherited guilt, interpretation of history, media manipulation, relationship towards nowadays Russia, but also the attitudes of Czechs and Slovaks towards foreigners.
