Summary

A film inspired by crimes committed in Bratislava in 1976 transposed to present-day Prague. A group of young men kidnap a first-year medical student from a university club and rape her. Up to this point their victims had remained silent, but the medical student decided to speak and therefore had to die. The rapists were apprehended a few years later and sentenced to prison. The case was later re-opened in Slovakia.
