Summer, 1989. Alois Nebel works as a train dispatcher at a small railway station in the Sudetenland, a mountainous region on the Czechoslovak border. He is a loner who suffers from hallucinations, seeing ghosts from the dark past of this region, where harsh revenge was exacted on the German population after WWII. Alois cannot get rid of these nightmares and eventually ends up in a sanatorium. There he gets to know The Mute, a mysterious man carrying an old photograph…. When he recovers and is allowed to leave, Alois finds things have changed outside. The Berlin Wall has been torn down and the Communist regime in Czechoslovakia fell. Without a job and a place to stay, Alois goes to the Prague railway headquarters to seek help. But soon he returns to the mountains to fight the ghosts that have been haunting him for so long. Based on a graphic novel trilogy, this moody gem uses black and white rotoscope animation to wondrous effect. Destined to become a classic of the form.

Director Tomáš Lunák and Producer Pavel Strnad are expected to attend both the 1/12 and 1/14 screenings.
