The biographical film tells the story of one of the most significant figures in the Czechoslovak history from the dissident period, when Václav Havel was not a famous figure yet. “Don’t expect a portrait of the statesman,” promises director Slávek Horák. The film focuses on Havel’s tumultuous personal life, dominated by the fight for truth and the right cause, persecution, imprisonment, but also love affairs, self-doubt and humour. In the center of everything, however, is an atypical, but even stronger relationship with his wife Olga.
