As it is said in the plot line above, this is definitely NOT a movie about the preparation and execution of Reich Protector Reinhardt Heydrich, but about the conséquences and so on of this assassination on the population afterwards, especially the Lidice folks.

As amny films from Eastern Europe, don't wait for many action scenes, but moving situations instead.
