Autumn 1938. Hitler asks Europe to give an inch, so he can take a mile. The representatives of the Western powers meet in Munich and negotiate – ‘about us, without us’. Czechoslovakia faces a choice between honourable suicide and self-sacrifice for the greater good. Locked in dispute about the Republic are two men of opposing views and personalities – the President, Edvard Beneš, and the soldier, Emanuel Moravec. The cold-blooded evaluator versus the hot-blooded fighter.
