This documentary clarifys the Czech-German relationship and dispels disillusions and
misunderstanding. A collection of interviews with contemporary witnesses, taking place in different
locations, including the borderlands where German inhabitants used to be a majority. One of the
key sequences presents director Samuel Fuller who, as a private in the US army, liberated the
town of Sokolov and documented the atrocities at a concentration camp. Another scene describes the town of Hranice in the “As bulge”, where the “Iron Curtain” was closely watched during
Communist rule. This mosaic, embellished with picturesque landscape panoramas, also contains the interesting memories of writer Lenka Reinerová.
