A miniseries based on the true life story of Josef Hasil, who was only 21 years old after the war. The story of the Šumava smuggler is based on the book The Return of the King of Šumava by David Jan Žák and depicts events that took place less than five years after the rise of the Communist Party. The real Josef Hasil survived the struggle with the regime and fled to America, where he only recently died.
A story of family ties, one friendship, courage, loyalty and betrayal.
