By a Sharp Knife

Teodor Kuhn

Ľudovít has lost his son to a ruthless neo-Nazi attack. But, due to a failure of the Slovak judicial system, the attackers are soon released and Ľudovít is faced with an absurd instance of injustice. He struggles with the impassive police force, the opportunistic judge, but also with the fact that he was never really close to his own son. The more he blames himself for his son’s death, the more his relationship with his wife Zuzana and younger daughter Janka falls apart, and the more he tries to influence the investigation.
