Original plots often lead the protagonist into very exciting situations, especially since she sometimes comes close to the law when solving them, and the unconventional methods she uses threaten her professional career.

Dalibor Vácha: Death on the Bark

The story of Lieutenant Adolf Opálka, a paratrooper who participated in the assassination of Heydrich. Pilot error resulted in his landing out of range outside of the originally selected location, which thwarted the group’s plans. While Corporal Ivan Kolařík quickly paid extra for inexperience, Lt. Adolf Opálka, as event commander, pushed through the protectorate, despite grumbling from the Karel Čurda company. The tension between them creates a counterpoint to the view of circumstances that have so far been overshadowed by the main line of preparations for the assassination of Protector Heydrich. His death is also the result of a moral decision for Opálka, on which the soldier inadvertently relies, and in the battle for the church on Resslova Street on the morning of June 18, he has nowhere to retreat with his comrades in arms. Which is not the case with Čurda. The text is read by actors Jan Teplý and Jan Vlasák.
