In January 1969 student Jan Palach set himself on fire in Prague in protest against the Soviet occupation. While the police searched for his followers, the government commenced a denunciation campaign forcing Palach’s family to hire charismatic attorney Dagmar Buresová to defend his reputation. In this epic three-part docudrama, director Agnieszka Holland (Europa Europa, In Darkness) acutely depicts a web of conflicts among the student protesters, the police and the media, exploring the impact Jan’s protest had within an already troubled social and political climate.
