Tono, an ex-convict, returns home after spending five years in prison for stealing lumber. He comes to his village, Cierny Hron, and sees that everything has changed: a stranger to his wife and 5-year-old son and jobless, because no-one wants to hire a thief.

Internal fight of a strong man between good and evil
12 August 2011 | by pietror_seSee all my reviews

This is a movie about a strong, proud man, returning from a jail. As he tries to reconnect to his life, he realizes that he has been changed to the point where he no longer can do "wrong" without thinking about it. He realizes that he has been abused by his friends and tries to avoid that abuse - which then resembles honorable life. But at and, he honorably fails. Whith a bit of open end, the movie let us finish the story by our liking. I am surprised that such a good movie had so little marketing/distribution. It has been made in a way to be understandable worldwide, not only locally. I personally never heard of it (and i live in the country where they made it), but the title song has been so good that i started to do some research on it. And check the story-writer - it is his last work. He must had some understanding of the people. 9/10 for me.
