Summary

This film is derived from three true stories linked to methamphetamine, its discovery and the birth of the new-age Czech drug scene. The story revolves around three actual people whose lives, work and lapses brought them together – a policeman now retired, the inventor of methamphetamine and a musician who was the first to take the drug intravenously. In the 1970s Pavel became part of a small community of people experimenting with narcotics, which did not at that time officially exist in Czechoslovakia. He later stood at the birth of crystal meth, which became a "Czech patent" and indirectly took the lives of hundred of thousands of people all over the world. Prague became the Amsterdam of the east with Pavel its leading figure. But Pavel’s whole life wasn’t fated to be like this; at his apparent end, in toxic psychosis, he several times survived his own death. The explosion that he caused in making a dose severely injured him and caused him a lifelong disability. He went to prison. He presently works as a therapist in Prague-Bohnice, where he paradoxically treats victims of his several-decades-old invention.
