The drama of an extraordinary man, reflecting the age-old struggle of the two principles that have controlled humanity from the very beginning. Good and evil. Love and hate, cruelty and mercy, faith and betrayal. All that in one person against a background of historical twists. Mikolášek’s extraordinary abilities are redeemed in the battle with his own demons who force him into cynical violence.
