This fascinating and often funny observational documentary follows absurdist playwright and jailed dissident-cum-Czech President Václav Havel from 1992 for over 10 years.

After the accidental death of director Pavel Koutecký in 2006, the film was completed by his collaborator Miroslav Janek and features cameos from The Rolling Stones and Bill Clinton.
