Synopsis

The film recounts the inspiring story of the who led a non-violent revolution in Czechoslovakia and overthrew an entrenched Communist dictatorship, without violence, in only ten days. Though their leader, Vaclav Havel, is well known as a dissident, playwright and the President of the Czech Republic, few people know the real story of his rise from prison to the Presidency. The film reveals that the Velvet Revolution was, in fact, staged out of theatres, galleries and art schools by student actors and artists of all sorts.
