The story of Jan Palach is a story without any surprising ending, since it is impossible to conceal the outcome in the case of Palach. Everyone knows what he will do, how he will do it, when and why he will do it. There are no popular conspiracy theories surrounding Palach either, as his case was duly investigated by two regimes, the totalitarian and the current one. Tragedy constitutes the foundation of Jan Palach’s story. A young man dies and, what’s more, of his own volition. A human life dedicated to the awareness of the whole is thereby terminated at the beginning of its opportunities. However, it gradually transpires that even an absolute act can have relative consequences.

The Kite deals with the issue of death, but it does so in a simple metaphorical and symbolic way on the relationship between a little boy and his grandpa. The film explains that none of us are here forever and that all living creatures must die, but also shows that death doesn’t mean the end of our journey.
