A drama that shows a metaphorical journey reflecting the post-war events in the Czech-German borderland; it takes place in the present and connects with the past through imagination. Otto Hille, a man from a Czech-German family, prepares an expedition for the old and seriously ill Leopold Schwarz, understood to be a cleansing experience to make amends for deeds long past. Thanks to the expedition Otto runs away to the landscape of this ancestors – the ruined German village of Vitín. He witnesses events that explain what Otto Hille is carrying with him and Leopold Schwarz is hiding. The past is a key to the present. However, this may not bring the sought-after liberating relief.
