In the village of Lidice near Prague, Frantisek Sima (Karel Roden) accidentally kills his own son in a drunken argument and is sentenced to prison.
While he is in jail, SS-Obergruppenführer Reinhard Heydrich (Detlef Bothe) is assassinated by two soldiers of the Czechoslovakian army and, to retaliate, the Nazis make an example of the small village of Lidice.
Over 300 people, many of whom are children, are massacred.
Having not heard from the rest of his family, Sima believes they have been unable to forgive him for his actions but in time he discovers the real reason for their silence.
