Inspired by the true story of herbalist Jan Mikolášek, who dedicated his life to caring for the sick, despite the immense obstacles he faced in his private and public life.

Already a local institution in Czechoslovakia before World War II, the healer gains in reputation and wealth whether during the Nazi occupation or under Communist rule.
