The film takes us back to the period that preceded the outburst of Hussite fanaticism, it is a film about the power of passion, revenge and the meaning of the struggle for justice. A film from the dawn of the undefeated Czech leader Jan Zizka of Trocnov.

 

The film is inspired by the true story of one of the greatest generals of his time, the undefeated Jan Zizka of Trocnov, who became a legend because of his actions.

“He, who is decent, is always decent. He, who was faithful, is faithful even now. He, who spins with the wind, spun with the wind before. He, who thinks that now his time has come, always thought only of himself. No one becomes a defector, unless he always was a defector. He, who changes his faith, had none to begin with. You cannot changea man - he will only become more colourful.”

(Karel Čapek, famous Czech writer - Lidové noviny, 1938)
