Story line

2009. Pavel Josek, an eminent scientist and former dissident, is due to receive a state honour for bravery. During the filming of a television documentary about his life it comes to light that at the beginning of the 1970s – under pressure from the secret police – he played a part in the discrediting of a former friend, who was ultimately forced to emigrate.
