Synopsis:

The film is based on a true event, the most notorious case of stark violence that took place since the Velvet Revolution of November 1989. The so-called Orlik Murders were perpetrated during the first half of the 1990's, where the victims were found at the bottom of the Orlik dam lake in Bohemia. The main protagonists of the film are three business partners who are after big money and perpetrate four premeditated murders. Divers brought up the bodies of two out the the four victims from the lake. The third victim died after being delivered a parcel that exploded, and the last victim was shot in his own home. The film mainly aims to unravel the murderers' motives. The events which become the story of this film are fascinating and shocking. They show exceptional cruelty and an absolute absence of any moral values on the part of the murderers.
