They Flew There with Zeppelin
What is hiding behind the walls of the closely guarded building near Smržová u Hradce Králové? The town’s residents have lived with indifference to the goings-on at the facility at their backs.

The town of records and curiosities
  Pelhřimov is only a small town in the Vysočina region, but also the town of records and curiosities, the town of a large jacket and giant dishes, the town of devils and ghosts. Is it multicultural? Is it tolerant?

Jailed memory
How such a historically significant building as the Uherské Hradiště Prison projects itself onto the everyday lives of those who have it right under their noses – students and teachers of the School of Decorative Arts and what impact does it have on them? With this particular case, the film tries to show the importance of historical sights in general.
