Director Jan Šikl has been collecting amateur films from different families for more than 30 years. Recently, he has found 3.5 hours of professionally filmed material that captures the invasion of Czechoslovakia by the Warsaw Pact armies on 21 August,1968. Nobody has seen the footage since. Jan Šikl begins to search who is captured in the videos and where they take place. The memories of concrete events come to life and the search gradually changes into a reflection on how the historical moment imprinted in ourselves. A film about experiencing an extreme situation and a specific form of social memory.
