A story of Lidice is a story about people and their lives. These people made history. The author of this story is Zdenek Mahler, who wrote it in 2007. But it took three years before it was decided to make the film. The film was made this year. The film is full of love, emotions and tragedy.

Lidice was a small village in the Czech Republic where people lived their lives in peace. But in 1942 Germans came to the village to take the children away and to kill the men. They killed all the men. Only one man survived - the man who was in a prison for a murder. He killed his own son. This man is the main character of this drama.
