Prague 1989. Communism is in shreds. Violinist Marie, the daughter of a dissident, and her politically active husband Viktor return home from London after spending 12 years in exile.

Any nostalgic welcome is put off for some other time as their return becomes a drama. Marie, the main character of the six-part mini-series, finds herself in hospital. As soon as she wakes up, she learns Viktor is missing.
