The film tells the story of the inhabitants of a forgotten village close to the Austrian border after the events of the 1930s to 1950s enter their lives. Previously it was essential to till the fields, survive the winter and raise children, but now the villagers must choose who is to be Austrian, German or Czech and pay the price such a decision will bring. And so, neighbours who used to live peacefully side by side turn into sworn enemies who “settle their accounts” even at the cost of committing a crime, shedding their moral inhibitions and humanity.
