In 1969 Czech student Jan Palach set himself on fire in Wenceslas Square in Prague to protest against the Soviet occupation.

The television mini series focuses on Jan’s mother and her legal battle to clear her son’s name.

The first part of Agniezka Holland’s trilogy has just had its world premiere in Prague.
