The approach of a young factory manager in the middle of a growing Bata-style town in the picturesque foothills of the majestic Tatra Mountains is sympathetically modern for its time - it is 1937. But make no mistake, the protagonist is his wife Helena (Eliška Křenková). But the determined look of an aspiring doctor about to give birth into her dream family future is suddenly overshadowed by the discovery of a newborn's dead body in the courtyard of a bustling factory. Helen's innate empathy, amplified by another condition, is not satisfied with a conspicuously quick solution to the mystery. A gripping detective drama with a progressive and deeply human take on a controversial subject not only just before the unsuspected war, but decades later.
