Historical Romance

Screenwriter: Jiří Šulc

World War II has ended. Europe is in shambles. Central and Eastern European countries are quickly falling under the control of the Communist parties run by Moscow. One of the last vestiges of democracy is to be found in Czechoslovakia. It is in this time, that an emissary from the Jewish Agency for Palestine arrives in Prague with a seemingly impossible task – to purchase weapons for the defense of a nascent Jewish state. It seems the future fate of Israel rests upon the outcome. As a lone nation fights for its independence, it turns to its only hope - another one that is losing its own.
