Lidice is just one of many small Czech villages trying to survive the war as best as it can. Day-to-day existence within the Protectorate flows along almost serenely and the biggest upheaval is a pub brawl where by accident a drunken father, František Šima, kills his son. Šima starts his prison sentence. Because he is incarcerated he alone survives when his family and his entire village become scapegoats for the assassination of SS, Second-in-Command, Reinhard Heydrich.
A human story of ordinary people and unspeakable horror.
Based on Zdeněk Mahler's Nocturne and the true story of the former village of Lidice, which was destroyed on 10 June 1942 by German forces under orders from Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler.
Advance ticket purchase strongly recommended.
