In November 1997, the deputy chairmen of the right-wing Civic Democratic Party (ODS) stood up against the then Prime Minister Václav Klaus. Initiated by doubts about the party’s funding, the row polarized the party’s membership, brought down the government and led to an early general election. The events are known as Sarajevo Assassination: Mr Klaus and his followers saw it as a huge conspiracy, where as his opponents just wanted to let Mr Klaus know they do not share his political views. Ten years later, the film aims to analyze the different explanations of the events.
