The Catholic Church goes through a difficult time in Czechoslovakia in the early 1980s. The communist regime threatens to destroy the institution and puts it under strict control, for which it is forced to accept certain restrictions related to freedom of belief and belief. expression. The cleric is divided between the "church of the catacombs", which maintains contact with the Vatican and the Western press, and the "ecclesiastical hierarchy", which cooperates with the forces of power and is represented by priests belonging to the association " Pacem in Terris ", whose life spanned the country from 1971 to 1989. This is the context in which young seminarians Michal and Juraj have to decide whether to stay true to their vocation and idealism or to kneel under pressure from the secret police .
