The film, based on the true story of the most famous prisoner today, Jiří Kajínek, whose conviction to life in prison has raised great doubts.
 

An apparent connection between the underworld and the police results in a double homicide and uncovers police atrocities. With his unbelievable escape from the Mírov prison fortress, the problematically convicted "murderer" Kajínek strives to draw attention to his innocence and the completely incomprehensible police methods used during the investigation.
 

After his capture he liter only the story of a man, but the story of the society that we live in.
 

The most discussed themes of recent years are whether Kajínek is actually innocent or guilty and the criticism of the police methods used.
 

This film has its own clear opinion on the entire case and doesn't only show the facts as they happened, but also the main protagonist's feelings and relationships.
